CEDAW Event in the North East
Women's Resource Centre are delighted to announce they have successfully bid for funds from Equality & Human Right Commission to prepare the England CEDAW shadow report and associated activities.
This event will be to explain what CEDAW is and it's process with small group work around various CEDAW themes and key emerging issues in NE. The event is for women only
CEDAW stands for the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women and is an international treaty adopted by the United Nations in 1979.
Unlike domestic UK and European Community legislation on sex discrimination and equal treatment, the Convention is solely concerned with the position of women rather than discrimination faced by both sexes (which would include discrimination and inequalities faced by men).
