The Conference established a strong international consensus to promote women's and girls' rights as the key to development everywhere. In many ways, it forced several government leaders to revisit their national landscape for women's concerns.
The "Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA)" specified plans and strategies that would make it possible for the advances in information technology to facilitate the empowerment and development of women all around the world. Thus, the women's movement and the use of media got further impetus after the Beijing Conference in 1995. Traditionally, the media world has been male-dominated globally as well as nationally.
