Introducción/Descripción:
The Latin America and the Caribbean Committee for the Defense of Womens Rights, along with the AfroLatin American, Afro-Caribbean and the Diaspora Networks on the occasion of the 56th session of CSW, call upon the States to fulfill the outstanding obligations they have with women in the region, arising from the commitments made through the ratification of treaties and conventions on human rights.

Pending obligations are many and multiple, ranging, from the area of legislative reform in order to be able to achieve formal equality, to the area of implementation of policies and measures in order to achieve real equality such as the access to economic resources, the right to live a life free of violence, to sexual and reproductive rights and the right to education, among others.

A democratic state of law is one that respects the human rights of all and all its inhabitants without any discrimination and one that guarantees the enjoyment and exercise of these rights. The treaties that grant human rights to women must be taken seriously and enforced based in good faith . Therefore we demand:
  • To guarantee equality between women and men, with the elimination of discriminatory practices, looking to the ratification of the CEDAW Protocol.
  • To promote equality and shared responsibility in the care work in order to eradicate poverty, through equal opportunities for men and women.
  • To guarantee a life free of violence for women and girls.
  • To secure sexual autonomy and reproductive autonomy; to secure access to resources and services in the areas of sexual and reproductive health.
  • To get access to a secular, intercultural, non-sexist and non-discriminatory education.

We invite you to be part of the Campaign For a State that fulfils its duties towards womens human rights, contacting: [email protected] .
