How can Indigenous Women participate in CEDAW?

✔ Let’s identify which countries will submit reports in the next CEDAW session in advance.

If your country submits: 🗣

✔ You can present specific information that you would like the CEDAW Committee to include in the topic list.

✔ You can prepare a shadow report to highlight the challenges faced by Indigenous Women and Girls in your country, along with specific recommendations to the Government.

✔ You can attend to the session or the plenary so that you can become aware of and influence for real changes in person.

✔ We invite you to be attentive to future steps to ensure that our voices as Indigenous Women and Girls are heard through the adoption of the General Recommendation. More information about the campaign is available here: https://cedaw.fimi-iiwf.org/

What is the importance of having a particular General Recommendation for Indigenous Women and Girls in CEDAW?

  • The member states that have ratified the Convention have voluntarily committed to respect, protect, promote, and fulfill the human rights of women in all circumstances.
  • CEDAW represents a mandatory compliance instrument for the States that adhere to it. Its implementation would likely be reflected in real changes in the daily lives of Indigenous Women and Girls, as well as their communities.
  • However, at this time, CEDAW does not specifically mention Indigenous Women and Girls, so it does not offer adequate protection against the discrimination we face.

Indigenous Women and Girls are agents of change. Despite this, we face particular challenges that limit our access to equal opportunities, challenges to which international instruments do not offer specific answers.

An example of these instruments is CEDAW, in which Member States must take actions aimed at respecting, protecting, promoting, and fulfilling the human rights of women and girls in all circumstances. However, CEDAW does not specifically mention Indigenous Women and Girls. This omission means that the Convention does not offer adequate protection against the discrimination that we face.
