EXPLANATORY NOTE:

For the sake of clarity, we would like to draw your attention to the following terminology: The acronym "CEDAW" is commonly used to refer to both the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, responsible for monitoring its implementation. The strictly correct use of "CEDAW" refers to the committee; however, in this publication, we refer to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women in several ways: as "CEDAW," "the Women's Convention," and "the Convention." We refer to the monitoring committee as "the CEDAW Committee" or "the Committee".
