- Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (Int) - Level 1The Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) is an international treaty adopted in 1979 by the United Nations General Assembly. Described as an international bill of rights for women, it came into force on 3 September 1981. Australia signed CEDAW on 17 August 1983. In signing CEDAW, Australia committed itself to being a society that promotes policies, laws, organisations, structures and attitudes that ensure women are guaranteed the same rights as men. Australia has two reservations to CEDAW which relate to women in the armed forces and provision of paid maternity leave.
