Pathway to Gender Equality
Authors/editor(s): Lee Waldorf, with research by Shelley Inglis
Representing the shared vision of UN Women and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Pathway to Gender Equality outlines how the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) can become a vehicle to implement the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA).
Intended for gender experts, national governments and a wide audience, Pathway to Gender Equality uses practical materials and identifies strategic entry points and specific ways in which the MDGs, CEDAW and BPfa correspond and support each other. After a preliminary mapping of gender equlality issues raised by each MDG, the book provides the corresponding obligations and commitments under CEDAW and BPfA, and outlines how the MDGs can be used to implement them.
