Obama Supports CEDAW

So here’s some good news for women everywhere:

“President-elect Barack Obama pledged to restore United States’ international standing, including a promise to push for ratification of the long-ignored United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, the women’s equal rights treaty known as CEDAW, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Nov. 30.”

It goes on to say that with the number of women Obama has placed in high-ranking positions, there is a good chance that their influence has played a part in this decision. Let’s hope to see some more of that in our future presidency.
