As globalization continued to spread throughout the world, there were many groups and organizations which resisted its effects. The United Nations responded to human rights abuses with the publication of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the calling of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. Additionally, in response to civil rights movements throughout the world, voting rights were gradually granted to most of the world's citizenry. Globalization also played a part in ending apartheid in South Africa and the crowning achievement of that process was the election of Nelson Mandela in 1994. Similar reforms were made in India to eliminate social discrimination against the Dalit. Protests in China (e.g., Tiananmen Square) also put on display the people's desire for human rights, but in that case it was not met with a happy ending.
