Women's Rights: Australia Should Ratify OP-CEDAW - JSCOT Submission

The Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women was tabled in parliament on 26 August 2008. In our September 2008 Submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties, the Human Rights Law Resource Centre unreservedly supported Australia's accession to the Optional Protocol.  In addition, the HRLRC emphasised that the Optional Protocol should be ratified in its entirety to ensure the full benefit of accession is realised.
