This week-long dynamic educational program, held on the campus of the University of Toronto, will focus on understanding and utilizing the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and other mechanisms of the women’s human rights system as tools for activism, feminist analysis and women’s human rights movement-building. Participants will develop a deep understanding of CEDAW as a tool, and as a visionary framework for the promotion of substantive equality for all women. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to co-learn with a diverse range of women’s human rights defenders!
