Join Dr. Amanda Dale, faculty of the Women’s Human Rights Institute for a brief and interactive introduction to the protections GBVAW advocates need to know about to hold their governments to account.

Centering on the protections offered through CEDAW, this introductory webinar will prepare you for your advocacy on the global pandemic of GBVAW. It serves as a good basis for the rest of our CEDAW series or can be taken as a stand-alone learning opportunity.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How international human rights can fit into your advocacy

  • How to read and understand the protections in CEDAW

  • How CEDAW is both intersectional and interdependent with other human rights protections

  • What the current state of CEDAW’s protections against GBVAW are and how to use them
