    About CEDAW

    In 1998, San Francisco became the first city to adopt a local ordinance reflecting the principles of CEDAW, the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women.  CEDAW represents an international bill of rights for all women that has been ratified by 187 countries.  Signed by President Jimmy Carter on July 17, 1980, it remains in the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations because the treaty has never been brought to the full Senate for a vote.  San Francisco‚Äôs Commission on the Status of Women has been proactive for two decades implementing CEDAW principles in local government to promote gender equality in employment, public budgets and public services.
