The Gender Sessions is a new series, presented in partnership by The China Current and Global Health 50/50. It explores the human stories behind gender, health and equality — and honors the work of women, men and gender nonconforming people everywhere. In the run-up to International Women's Day, we spoke to some of the experts extending that legacy including Dr. Zahra Zeinali, an Iranian physician who is based in Berlin. She looks back at the Beijing Women's Conference, a landmark event in 1995 that provided a platform for action and unleashed liberation movements globally. Special thanks to Global Health 50/50 and its co-directors, Professor Dr. Sarah Hawkes and Professor Kent Buse.
