Submission to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) Pre-sessional working group, 79th session (9-13 November 2020). WILPF was part of a joint submission made to the Universal Periodic Review Working Group, 34th session in March 2019. The submission addresses, inter alia, the following issues: discrimination against women in law, including in Personal Status Law and the Penal code; sexual harassment, child marriage, trafficking of women and girls, female genital mutilation and other forms of violence against women; and the targeting of women human rights defenders. Since many of the issues addressed therein are relevant to the pre-sessional working group, we are bringing the joint UPR submission to the CEDAW Committee’s attention. Unfortunately, it was not possible to update the information in therein in order to provide the Committee with more recent developments by the deadline set for submissions. Nonetheless, we will be pleased to respond to questions and requests for additional information from Committee members.
