The Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) is requesting input from civil society on a thematic report on discrimination against women in law and in practice, and how the issue is addressed throughout the United Nations human rights system, including CEDAW.  For more information on the role that civil society plays at the UN, please visit: Esango.un.org.

Any relevant information for this study is welcome. Your input would greatly enhance the quality of this report and ensure that it considers issues that may not have been adequately addressed, such as the situation of indigenous women, SOGI issues, etc.

This report will be submitted to the Human Rights Council at the September 2010 session.  Read the Call for Input for more information.

Please send your responses directly to Cecilia Moller, Acting Coordinator of the Women’s Rights and Gender Section.
