CEDAW stands for the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, an international bill of rights for women. In 1998, San Francisco became the first city in the nation to adopt a local CEDAW Ordinance.
The CEDAW Women’s Human Rights Awards distinguish leaders and organizations who use their public roles to advance the rights of women. Awards are given for leadership demonstrated in multiple sectors of the community, including education, entrepreneurship, government, health, labor, media and philanthropy which represent the CEDAW principles.
