Human Rights = Healthy Women: 3 Days Left to be One of 10,000!

by on December 7, 2009

To the more than 2,200 of you who have urged your Senators to protect women's rights and women's health by Ratifying CEDAW: Thank You!We are more than halfway through the 10,000 in 10 Campaign, and really need your help to reach our goal of 10,000 signatures to support CEDAW.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.

Places: Sudan, Chad
