CFUW monitors and reports on the human rights situation of women and girls in Canada and worldwide. One important element of this work is to encourage governments in Canada to fully meet their human rights obligations under various United Nations Conventions and agreements. We report on abuses to UN Committees and Commissions, and urge politicians to fully implement recommendations.
