2011 CEDAW Report Card by West Coast LEAF now posted

West Coast LEAF has added the 2011 CEDAW Report Card to the Reform & Research section of Clicklaw.

This report was produced by the West Coast Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF)cedaw-reportcard'11 with input from various community agencies in BC. It looks at the government’s performance against the international standards of women’s rights and freedoms outlined in the United Nations’ Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

The stated goal of West Coast LEAF’s CEDAW Report Card project is to raise public awareness about the shortcomings and successes of BC in meeting its international obligations on women’s rights, and to advocate for adequate responses to the CEDAW Committee’s concerns.
