REDRESS has submitted comments to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) on its Draft Addendum to General Recommendation No. 19.  Adopted in 1992, General Recommendation 19 identifies all acts of gender-based violence as forms of discrimination, targets its root causes within the inequality framework, and obliges states to take all appropriate measures to end violence against women. REDRESS makes several recommendation to strengthen the Draft Addendum, including the addition of a separate section on victims’ right to redress, in order to emphasise and clarify the nature and content of the corresponding obligation on States to ensure provisions for redress.
