    IPS Joins Celebrations for CEDAW’s 30th Birthday


    To celebrate its 30th birthday the Convention of Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) is gathering stories, testimonies and reflections about how its work has helped the respect of women’s rights and the prevention of discrimination against them.

    Extensive reporting by IPS on CEDAW and its impact country by country in UN member states that have ratified it has been made available to the CEDAW website, and potentially for inclusion in their forthcoming printed publication, as a contribution to this initiative. IPS has an electronic archive of its reporting back to 1994.

    CEDAW was adopted by the UN General Assembly on December 18, 1979. To date, it has been ratified by 185 of the UN’s 192 member states.

    Email and stories about CEDAW can be sent to info@stories-of-cedaw.net.
