FIST Adopts Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights

Feminists in Struggle is proud to adopt the Declaration on Women’s Sex-Based Rights  in its entirety.  We are in full support of the Declaration, released earlier this month, which reaffirms the rights enumerated in the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), which the UN adopted in 1979, and which the United States has yet to ratify, though 189 countries have done so. We wish to encourage all feminists and feminist organizations to press for the ratification of CEDAW, which has been referred to as an international bill of rights for women and to support the Declaration by going to the website and signing on.  No time like the present during March, Women’s History Month!
