Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW)
The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), adopted in 1979 by the UN General Assembly, is often described as an international bill of rights for women. Consisting of a preamble and 30 articles, it defines what constitutes discrimination against women and sets up an agenda for national action to end such discrimination.

Main aims and actions that are highlighted in the articles of CEDAW include the elimination of discrimination and the protection of equal rights of men and women in:

 Political and public life (to participate in the formulation and implementation of government policy and to hold public office);
 Education (same access to studies and curricula, and the elimination of gender stereotypes);
 Employment (same employment opportunities and working conditions, and prevention of discrimination on grounds of marriage and maternity);
 Health (equal access to health care services);
 Economic and Social Benefits (same right to family benefits and financial credit);
 Law (legal capacity identical to both men and women); and 
 Marriage and family life (same rights in marriage and as parents).
