    Background: Over 1500 women from 94 countries attended the 50th International Womens' Congress which had its final day in Copenhagen, Apr 23. The Congress is non-political and fights for equal rights for women all over the world.

    All women delegates - who are or have been, members of a government - were invited to lunch on the last day by the only Danish women minister, Mrs. Bodil Kock. Later, the end of the Congress was marked by a torch-light procession through the streets of Copenhagen.

    The event is supported by the Communist-controlled Womens' Democratic Organization, and, - according to reports - was being held as part of a campaign to gain supremacy over the rival Social Democratic Women's Day. Topics discussed at the Copenhagen meeting included the problems of South Africa.
