Submission to the National Women’s Council of Ireland’s Shadow Report for submission to the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, 2016
Ireland’s commitment to the implementation of The UN Convention on the
Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) was to
be examined in early 2017. As part of this process, the State submits a written
response to a list of issues identified by the CEDAW Committee, which is an
independent expert body within the United Nations. The National Women’s
Council of Ireland drafted a Shadow Report for submission to the CEDAW
Committee and this is CLM’s submission to that Shadow Report. It had been
ten years since Ireland was last reviewed by this Committee. CLM, in its work
to improve access to justice over the last 41 years, works to tackle barriers to
justice and to highlight and challenge the disproportionate effect of unfair laws
and policies on certain groups in society, including women.
