The IATE Term of the week is “CEDAW – Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women”

This week we have chosen “CEDAW – Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women” since today it is the International Women’s Day.

This event reminds us of the remarkable goals achieved by women in the last century and their current important role in our society.

Furthermore, we have to keep in mind that the path to obtain a fully equal social treatment for women all over the world is still long and we have to work hard to reach it.

CEDAW is often described as an international bill of rights for women. Consisting of a preamble and 30 articles, it defines what constitutes discrimination against women and sets up an agenda for national action to end such discrimination.

We invite you to suggest the equivalent terms in the missing EU languages with a reliable reference and possibly an accurate definition.

  1. I could not believe my eyes to see that SPANISH was missing from the list! Checked it twice, for good measure, but definitely, “ES” is not there. So I respectfully ask you to include it in the list as promptly as possible:

    CONVENCIÓN SOBRE LA ELIMINACIÓN DE TODAS LAS FORMAS DE DISCRIMINACIÓN CONTRA LA MUJER
