CEDAW, also known as the Women's Treaty and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, calls for the equal treatment of women everywhere with regards to domestic violence, maternal health, economic security, and human trafficking. While the United States has signed the treaty, it still has yet to ratify it.

The US needs to ratify CEDAW in order to continue the discussion of women's rights and equality in an international forum. Sign the petition asking Congress to do the right thing for women around the world and ratify the Women's Treaty.

Dear Congress,

As a passionate advocate for women's rights, I urge you to ratify the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women treaty. While it was signed by Jimmy Carter in 1980, it still has yet to be ratified by the US.

CEDAW outlines core principles with regards to human rights, specifically those of women around the world. It's a well-known fact that while American women for the most part enjoy total equality, women from other countries aren't as fortunate. Many women still face domestic violence, lack of education and opportunities, oppression, and discrimination.

As an international leader in the pursuit of equal human rights, the US needs to set the example for the rest of the world. Ratification requires two-thirds of the Senate to vote in favor of it. Please see that you and your colleagues vote to help women everywhere achieve equality.

Thank you for your time.
