The Green Party makes a strong and urgent call for U.S. passage of CEDAW, the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, which was adopted in 1979 by the UN General Assembly and ratified by 173 countries. It is also known as the Women's Convention, the Women's Bill of Rights, and an International Bill of Rights for Women. The United States is one of a very few countries and the only industrialized nation that has not ratified it.
Women's Equality is an important part of our platform.
The National Women's Caucus (NWC) is sponsoring a national lobby in DC in April. Details can be found at Greens vs. Greed and here.
