The Plenary first considered draft resolutions under Agenda Item 5, "Monitoring the Implementation of the Nairobi Forward-Looking Strategies for the Advancement of Women." The Russian Federation requested a vote on draft resolution E/CN.6/1995/L.7, "Relief to women and children who have been taken as hostages and imprisoned in armed conflict, to be provided by the beginning of the FWCW." The vote was: 27 for, 0 against, 14 abstentions and 2 not participating. Draft resolutions E/CN.6/1995/L.9, "Integration of women in the Middle East peace process," E/CN.6/1995/L.11, "Mainstreaming the human rights of women," E/CN.6/1995/L.12, "Palestinian Women," E/CN.6/1995/L.13, "Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women," and E/CN.6/1995/L.15, "Violence against women migrant workers," were adopted.
Two draft resolutions on Agenda Item 6 (Priority Themes) were also discussed. Peru noted translation problems in E/CN.6/1995/L.16, "Integration of displaced women into development processes." Delegates adopted E/CN.6/1995/L.18, "Women working in agriculture and rural development," after which Belgium said she would interpret the reference to "equity" in the wage system as "equality." Namibia, who had introduced the resolution, offered to change the text, but Iran objected. Pakistan suggested sending the proposed change with the resolution to the substantive session of ECOSOC.
