- To those of you who have not yet signed, take action today and help us reach 10,000 signatures by December 10, International Human Rights Day!
- To those of you who have already?signed on: forward this action to 6 more friends now and help build the movement. If you each get 6 friends, family or colleagues to sign on, we'll surpass our goal of 10,000 in 10!
CEDAW (the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women) was introduced 30 years ago. The US remains one of only 7 UN member states who have yet to ratify the treaty — alongside Sudan, where rape is used as a weapon of war, and Somalia, where female genital cutting is commonplace.With 2010 around the corner and new support in the Congress and Administration for CEDAW, we are in a new era of hope for US ratification. Help us leverage this new opportunity to remind the Senate that women's health in the US and abroad depend on the protection and promotion of women's rights.
