This year also marks thirty years since the adoption of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, or CEDAW, by the United Nations General Assembly. Seven countries that have not ratified the international treaty are the United States, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Nauru, Palau and Tonga.


Don't we keep wonderful company though.

In a related note:

Quote:
SENECA FALLS (AP)

The upstate New York village that's hallowed ground for the women's rights movement and claims to be the inspiration for Bedford Falls in "It's A Wonderful Life" could fade into history.

Voters in Seneca Falls will decide next week whether the village should be absorbed into the town of Seneca Falls, a move supporters say will eliminate a layer of government and reduce taxes.


I have always wanted to visit the birthplace of women's rights in the U.S.
