Toolkit for Promoting Women’s and Girls’ Equality in Your Community

Cities for CEDAW is the national, grassroots campaign building local support for the United Nations treaty on human rights for women. The United National Association of the United States, a key partner to NEA on this and other international issues, developed the Cities for CEDAW Toolkit (link to pdf) that can help you promote women

About CEDAW - The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) needs ratification by the United States Senate. It is the comprehensive international agreement that affirms human rights for girls and women around the world, impacting education, economic, social and political rights. The United States is one of just six countries in the world that have not ratified CEDAW; the others include Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Palau and Tonga.

So what do Louisville Kentucky and San Francisco have in common? Both cities have CEDAW ordinances which guide gender fairness in administration, contracts and city services. Get involved with Cities for CEDAW, a coalition effort to bring gender fairness to towns and communities across the United States.
