Africa for Women's Rights

An alliance of African human rights groups has launched a campaign for the ratification of the basic treaties for women's rights: the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the Optional Protocol to CEDAW, and the Protocol to the African Charta on Human and People's Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa (Maputo Protocol). Find the campaign blog here!
The map, gleaned from the website of the Paris-based International Federation of Human Rights Leagues (FIDH) shows which countries have ratified all treaties (green), two out of three (yellow), only one (orange) or none (red).
