[ENGLISH]

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) establishes an international bill of rights for women. Article 10 guarantees their right to education. It promotes gender equality endowing every woman with equal rights as those of man in the field of education, from pre-school to higher technical education. It refers to access to education, opportunities in career and vocational guidance, scholarships or other study grants, programmes of continuing education (adult learning) and the elimination of illiteracy. It also provides for the elimination of any gender stereotyped concept of the roles of men and women at all levels and in all forms of education.
 

 

This General Recommendation by the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women aims to clarify the scope and meaning of Article 2 of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, which provides ways for States parties to implement domestically the substantive provisions of the Convention.

See paragraphs 13, 21 and 36 for references to education.

This Report provides an overview of what countries are doing to ensure the right to education for girls and women. Based on the national reports of forty countries from different regions, the Report is organized in a series of country factsheets. Each factsheet contains key statistics on the situation of girls in education in each reporting country, followed by information on each country’s status of ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (1979) and the Convention against Discrimination in Education (1960) as well as information on their constitutional and legislative provisions in this field. They illustrate how countries have made noteworthy advances in addressing gender inequalities and in eliminating discriminatory attitudes towards girls and women in the field of education.

The Report is based on national reports submitted for the Eighth Consultation on the monitoring of the implementation of the Convention against Discrimination in Education (1960) and the Recommendation against Discrimination in Education (1960).

 

Following the Iranian revolution of 1979, due to their affiliation with political or religious groups, a great number of Iranian students were temporarily or permanently deprived of their right to education. Many students were expelled from university for membership in non-Islamic groups. In recent years the number of students whom organizations under the supervision and control of the Iranian regime has banned or “starred” from education has increased dramatically.

The Right to Education Report aims to raise awareness by providing comprehensive reporting on cases of student rights violations and any other form of education deprivation in Iran throughout the last three decades.

Las vidas de las mujeres se ven afectadas por una gran variedad de temas, tales como la frecuente falta de servicios básicos; la desigualdad formal y sustantiva; la falta de responsabilidad de los Estados, las empresas y otros actores globales; los estereotipos culturales discriminatorios; las creencias y el impacto de las prácticas nocivas, y el desarrollo de programas que no consideran los derechos y las experiencias de las mujeres y las diferencias entre ellas. Dentro de este contexto, el Pacto Internacional de Derechos Económicos, Sociales y Culturales ( PIDESC ) y la Convención sobre la eliminación de todas las formas de Discriminación contra la Mujer ( CEDAW) son los dos instrumentos fundamentales de derechos humanos que proporcionan un foro para exigir la realización de los humanos de las mujeres derechos

Esta guía , creada en conjunto con IWRAW - Asia Pacífico, ofrece una guía práctica para el uso tanto de la CEDAW y PIDESC , así como sus mecanismos de denuncia para exigir el reconocimiento y la ejecución de los DESC de las mujeres , incluido el derecho a la educación.

Les vies des femmes sont touchées par une myriade de questions telles que l'absence fréquente de services de base; l'inégalité; le manque de responsabilité des Etats, des entreprises et d'autres acteurs mondiaux ; les stéréotypes culturels discriminatoires, les croyances et l'impact de pratiques néfastes; les fondamentalismes religieux et les programmes de développement qui excluent l'examen des droits et expériences des femmes et les différences entre les femmes. Dans ce contexte, le Pacte international relatif aux droits économiques , sociaux et culturels (PIDESC) et la Convention sur l' élimination de toutes les formes de discrimination à l'égard des femmes (CEDAW) sont les deux principaux instruments des droits de l’Homme qui fournissent un forum pour exiger la réalisation de des droits de l’Homme des femmes.

Ce guide, créé en collaboration avec IWRAW Asie-Pacifique , fournit un guide-ressource pour l’utilisation des mécanismes de plaintes de la Convention sur l’élimination de toutes les formes de discrimination à l’égard des femmes et du Protocol facultative se rapportant au Pacte international relatif aux droits économiques, sociaux et culturels; ainsi que pour réclamer la reconnaissance et mise en œuvre des droits économiques, sociaux et culturels  des femmes, y compris le droit à l'éducation.

Women’s lives are impacted by a myriad of issues such as the frequent lack of basic services; inequality; lack of accountability of States, corporations and other global actors; discriminatory cultural stereotypes, beliefs and the impact of harmful practices; religious fundamentalisms and development agendas which exclude consideration of the rights and experiences of women and differences between women. Within this context, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and the Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) are the two key human rights instruments which provide a forum for demanding realisation of women’s human rights.

This guide, created in conjunction with IWRAW-Asia Pacific, provides a practical guide to using both CEDAW and ICESCR as well as their complaints mechanisms to demand recognition and implementation of women's ESC rights, including the right to education.
