Currently we have an ordinance committee working on a draft of a city ordinance designed to codify the principles and goals of CEDAW, which we will share with the City Council Women’s Caucus and the Mayor’s Office to edit and augment. The ordinance will focus on a number of important issues relevant to women and girls in Pittsburgh.
In order to be sure that the ordinance reflects the diverse needs and interests of women and girls in our region, we are focused on outreach, education, and conducting listening sessions with local neighborhoods, communities, individuals, and organizations.
You can find more information at our website pgh4cedaw.org or Facebook Cities for CEDAW Pittsburgh. Or join us at our next CEDAW coalition meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 19 at 7:15 pm at the Friends Meeting House, 4836 Ellsworth Ave in Oakland. All are welcome!
