Engagement: CEDAW

The Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women is an expert body established in 1982 composed of 23 experts on women's issues from around the world. The Committee monitors national implementation of the 1979 Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), also known as the International Women’s Bill of Rights. The Committee meets every year in at least two sessions of three weeks each.

WILPF’s Human Rights Programme leads our engagement with CEDAW, which includes monitoring, advocacy, and coordination with WILPF sections around the world to provide shadow reports at the country level.
