A Superhero for Scotland

A Superhero for Scotland
This short film made by Engender explains what CEDAW is and why women in Scotland should know about it.
CEDAW (Convention for the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women) is a bill of human rights for women introduced by the United Nation.
 
The UN recognises that throughout the world women have less power and opportunity experience more violence and responsibility than men.
 
In times of economic austerity women pay the price of cuts and Engender's film calls on women of the world to take part in CEDAW consultations in their area.
 
CEDAW is the film's eponymous 'Superhero for Scotland' seeking out inequality and sharing out power among women.
The film calls on all women to give evidence about their experience of gender inequality.
