Description:Presented by the United National Development Programme (UNDP) and the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP). Executive producer, Isabella Waterschoot; Writer Dale Hermanson. Heralded as the "Bill of rights for women", CEDAW seeks to eliminate discrimination against women throughout the world and to ensure that women are better considered in social, economic and political development. CEDAW is in varying stages of discussion, ratification and implementation in Pacific Islands countries. Reports from the countries exhibit the challenges that arise when elements of the convention contradict local customs and laws.
