Ratify Women!

NOW has launched a new campaign: Ratify Women!

The United Nations Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) is the most complete international agreement on basic human rights for women and was adopted by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in 1979. To date, 185 countries have ratified CEDAW. Even though the U.S. helped draft the treaty, it is the only industrialized country left to ratify.
Sign the petition.  Demand an end to all forms of discrimination against women.
