Marked shift in emphasis from special protection to the promotion of equality in the standard-setting
activities of the ILO regarding women occurred during 1975, when the International Labor Conference
adopted a Declaration on Equality of Opportunity and Treatment for Women Workers. 4 The
Declaration recalls that the protection of women at work should be an integral part of the efforts aimed
at continuous promotion and improvement of living and working conditions of all employees. It provides
that women should be protected “on the same basis and with the same standards of protection as

processes which might have a harmful effect on women and men from the standpoint of their social
function of reproduction. In 1985 the International Labour Conference adopted a resolution on equal
opportunities and equal treatment for men and women in employment. 5
