CEDAW, or the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, has been ratified in all countries except Iran, Sudan, Somalia, several small Pacific Island nations, and the United States of America. Doesn't this seem like the game "Which one is not like the others?"? Jimmy Carter signed the treaty back in 1980, but the full U.S. Senate has never voted on it.
This week the Senate is holding the first hearings on CEDAW in years. Those speaking out in favor of the ratification of the Convention include former Supreme Court Justice, Sandra Day O'Connor, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women's Issues Melanne Verveer, and actor Geena Davis, who has become very vocal on women's issues in recent years. President Obama is also a very strong supporter of CEDAW.
