YWCA Australia and its partners are compiling an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander component to the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) shadow report for submission in 2014. We are seeking the views and input of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women on issues affecting them in their communities.

Join us in Sydney, Melbourne or online to be part of the development of the 2014 CEDAW NGO Shadow Report. CEDAW is the UN Convention on Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women. Each consultation will focus on the issues affecting a specific group of women who continue to experience significant barriers to claiming their human rights. Consultations have already been held in other cities.
