Event Details

In March 2019, the CEDAW Committee published a set of recommendations on how the UK could better protect and promote women's rights: 

The UK and devolved governments have until 2023 to implement these recommendations before they must report back to the UN on progress made, although three overarching recommendations and one surrounding BREXIT must be reported on in 2021.

Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) are monitoring the progress that the Government is making towards those recommendations that have a direct impact upon women’s organisations. This focus group is part of this process and builds upon the findings of a questionnaire disseminated in September 2019
 
We are working in collaboration with The Public Law Project of this project plan and will be reporting the findings before the end of the 2019.

CEDAW is the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1979. It defines discrimination against women on a universal basis, forming an important bill of rights for women worldwide. Altogether 186 countries have become state parties to CEDAW - the UK Government ratified in 1986. These parties have an obligation to respect, protect and fulfil women's human rights.
