obstacles towards implementing the California Women's
Agenda and UN Platform for action. Their reports are now
part of The California Plan of Action, and were taken
to the U.N. conference in June 5-9, 2000. Women leaders helped select
Priorities for Action by completing a brief survey questionnaire.
