Abstract

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 18 December 1979 and boasts a near universal ratification. The papers collected in this volume were contributed in response to an invitation issued by the Centre for Research on International Organizations (CRIO) at the University of Catania School of Law for its Program Gender Issues and International Legal Standards, intended in 2009 as a celebration of the Thirtieth Anniversary of the Convention. From these distinguished contributions there still emerges a picture of fierce discrimination against women and, in response to this situation, a call for a strong commitment not only to furthering the cause of equality, but to highlighting the pressing needs for a real consideration of women’s concerns and problems.
