"President Clinton established the Council in August 1995, on the eve of the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, in order to "make sure that all the effort and good ideas actually get implemented when we get back home."

"The Council is charged with coordinating the implementation of the Platform for Action adopted at Beijing, including the U.S. commitments announced there. It also develops related initiatives to further women's progress and engages in outreach and public education to support the successful implementation of the Conference agreements.

"First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton serves as Honorary Chair of PICW. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright chairs the Council. The Council includes high level representatives from executive branch agencies." [1]
