What is CEDAW

CEDAW:  Is the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women

CEDAW is a United Nations treaty for all women’s equality. The only international human rights treaty that focuses on women’s rights and provides a universal definition of discrimination against women so those who would discriminate on the basis of sex can no longer claim that no clear definition exists. It also calls for action to eliminate discrimination in many areas including politics, law, employment, education and health care.
