The 2023 Cities for CEDAW Report was launched 9/12 in Washington DC!

Take Action in Your City

The NGO Committee on the Status of Women in New York, the Women’s Intercultural Network (WIN) and The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights (in conjunction with The Leadership Conference Education Fund) have developed an effective campaign, Cities for CEDAW, to help you to take action in your city, activate the women’s and human rights community, gain agreement with local leaders to endorse CEDAW now, and work together to end discrimination against women.

Over 40 cities – from San Francisco, CA to Louisville, KY – have either already passed an ordinance or are making serious progress towards an ordinance (such as by passing a resolution that affirms support for the principles of CEDAW). More than ten cities across the country have expressed interest in organizing to establish the principles of CEDAW locally, and the number continues to grow by the day.

A list of cities actively engaged in the Cities for CEDAW campaign is available here
