General Recommendations #1-37 of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) is an international legal instrument that requires countries to eliminate discrimination against women and girls in all areas and promotes women’s and girls’ equal rights.

CEDAW is often described as the international bill of rights for women, and is one of the key international agreements that guides the work of UN Women in achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls. Ukraine ratified CEDAW in March 1981 and since then submitted 8 periodic reports of the implementation of the Convention.

General Recommendations are authoritative interpretations of the relevant articles of the Convention adopted during the sessions of the CEDAW Committee.

General Recommendations #1-37 of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women is a catalogue of these interpretations to be used by the civil servants and civil society for the improved understanding, implementation and monitoring of CEDAW.
