Title:Oppression of the Devoted
Author(s):Lin, Janice
Contributor(s):Livny, Avital
Subject(s):CEDAW, women's right, religion
Abstract:Dominated by patriarchy, women are still struggling to break through layers of oppression to enjoy the same basic human rights as men. The Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) international treaty sought to alleviate this oppression and promote gender equality worldwide, yet the lack of enforcement mechanisms and enduring cultural restraints have impacted the extent of the treatys impact on womens rights progress in the 187 CEDAW countries. Religion and religiosity are key components in shaping and maintaining these cultural values and traditions that impact womens societal statuses, and thus, as significant cultural influences, religion and religiosity notably impact the success of the implementation of CEDAWs provisions.
