MAKE CHANGE: Sign a Petition to Ratify CEDAW in the U.S.

For International Women's Day (March 8) and Women's History Month, the National Organization for Women in the U.S. is spearheading a petition that calls for President Obama to take action to ratify the critically important women's rights treaty from the United Nations, the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

Since the treaty was introduced in 1979, hundreds of countries from every region of the world have ratified it to signal the intention to work towards gender equity. The United States has yet to ratify CEDAW.

Sign the petition now! It will be delivered to the White House at the end of March. It's a simple, effective way of showing that you support gender equity.
