Take the CEDAW Pledge

CEDAW – the Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women – is a landmark agreement that affirms principles of fundamental human rights and equality for women and girls around the world. It offers countries a practical blueprint to promote basic rights and to open opportunities for women and girls in all areas of society.

I pledge to stand with women and girls around the world in strongly supporting CEDAW until all countries recognize the equality and human rights of women and ratify this important treaty.

As such, I will do the following:

  • Sign up to get periodic updates about CEDAW
  • Educate my family, friends and colleagues about the importance of CEDAW. Get more facts about CEDAW.
  • Urge my organization to sign-on as a supporter of CEDAW. Sign on here.
  • Educate my policy makers about the benefits of CEDAW. Read CEDAW fact sheet for examples.
  • Support CEDAW grassroots activities in the United States.
