It's Time to Ratify CEDAW

The Women's Rights Treaty (the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women) is a strong tool that is used to protect women and girls from violence, end injustices such as forced marriage and trafficking, and provide access to education and vocational training. Unfortunately, the United States is one of just seven nations that have yet to ratify the Treaty.   Join Global and urge the 113th U.S. Congress, which convenes in January 2013, to ratify this treaty.
