The UK CEDAW Shadow Report – Women’s Equality in the UK: A health check

Standard

Sisters of Frida has been part of the UK CEDAW Working Group for some time now and Armineh Soorenian was largely responsible for collating a contribution for us about disabled women in the shadow report.

The UK CEDAW Shadow Report – Women’s Equality in the UK: A health check (http://thewomensresourcecentre.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/Women%E2%80%99s-Equality-in-the-UK-A-health-check.pdf)  – has been produced by the CEDAW Working Group, a coalition of 42 women’s and human rights organisations from across the UK in preparation for the examination of the UK Government by the UN CEDAW Committee in July 2013.

Zara Todd and Eleanor Lisney represented SoF at the launch last week. Here are some of the reports about the successful launch –

  1. Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  2. Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google,
    and found that it’s truly informative. I am going to watch out for brussels. I’ll
    be grateful if you continue this in future.

    Numerous people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!
