Demanding Accountability presents a comprehensive history and analysis of the systematic organizing efforts of women prior to, during, and after the UN World Conference on Human Rights (Vienna, 1993). It offers especially detailed insights into the "Global Tribunal on Violations of Women Rights" held at the Conference, which proved to be a global forum of demonstrating the failure of existing human rights mechanisms to protect women's human rights. Resources contained in the book include: the sections of the Vienna Declaration pertaining to women; a list of UN Human Rights divisions; the Petition to Promote and Protect Women's Human Rights; an overview of hearings and tribunals form around the world; and a reading/contact list.
