As we all know the CEDAW foregrounds the social and cultural underpinnings from which sex based discrimination arises. It addresses discrimination in areas such as education, employment, marriage and family relations, health care, politics, finance and law. 


India has to report to the CEDAW Committee on its implementation of the recommendation of the previous report i.e., the 4th & 5th periodic report and initiate the process of planning to write the next report. 


An esteemed group of experts, stalwarts of women’s movement in India, came together to prepare these reports, at a National Consultation "Facilitating the Fulfillment of State Obligation under CEDAW Convention, Follow up of 2014 Recommendations and preparation for the next Periodic Report for Advancement of Women's Rights and Equality". The consultation was organised by NAWO (National Alliance of Women) in collaboration with FES.
