Discussions with CEDAW on the situation of Palestinian women

As part of the Non-Governmental Women Coalition for the Implementation of CEDAW delegation, the Palestinian Centre for Peace and Democracy (PCPD) discussed the situation of Palestinian women with the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in Geneva, precisely on July 9th, 2018.

During this meeting, the delegation submitted the first shadow report on the status of women and girls in the State of Palestine which focuses on girls and women’s social, economic and political rights, as the Palestinian State’s commitments to CEDAW Convention to which it has acceded in 2014.

The meeting focused on the obstacles and the challenges impeding the implementation of the convention on the ground, and the failure of the Palestinian State to introduce an integrated legal system and harmonize all laws to ensure equality, reduce gender-based discrimination and eliminate all violence against women and girls, or to adopt policies to change traditional attitudes and modify social and cultural patterns.  

More information in this meeting are also available here.
