CEDAW SHADOW REPORT

Executive Summary 

This report reflects the results of WON’s research and interviews of women from ten of Myanmar’s states, who shared their experiences and struggles to vindicate their rights.1 As a party to CEDAW, Myanmar’s government has an obligation to protect and guarantee the rights of its female citizens in a variety of realms. Of particular concern to WON are Myanmar’s shortcomings in regard to its obligations under Articles 7, 12, and 14.
