Clinton Pushes Women's Rights Treaty

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other top female world leaders convened on Monday to sign a document calling for greater public female participation in developing countries, particularly in the Middle East. The document asks that the United Nations ratify the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). Ironically, the U.S. is the only industrialized nation in the world that hasn't yet signed the treaty. Clinton didn't draw attention to America's glaring absence from the list of treaty signees, but she and President Obama have made it clear that CEDAW should be ratified in the Senate.
