UNZIPPING CEDAW: A GUIDE TO THE RIGHTS OF KEY AFFECTED WOMEN AND GIRLS (UNZIP THE LIPS, 2015)

This guide seeks to explain how to engage with the international Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, which was passed in 1979. Historically, this convention has not been very helpful to sex workers or transgender people. However, society's understanding of gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual rights and sex work has evolved over the years. CEDAW can be powerful tool to advocate for the health, economic, social and cultural rights of all women and girls, including sex workers and transgender people. This guide is produced by the Unzip the Lips platform, of which APNSW is a member.
