A crash course in changing the world.
For three decades, the 23-member Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women has worked to bring the landmark Women’s Convention (CEDAW) to life. In response to the Committee’s review and recommendations, governments have changed their laws, policies and approaches to women in line with international gender equality goals.
After investigating this story I discovered that over the 30 years that the CEDAW has been in bussiness 30 countries now have at least 30% of their government women. This is an outstanding achievement and I do not know why it was not mentioned in the origonal article.
