CEDAW or the Convention for the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women is an ordinance that creates processes to ensure that policies and their implementation are beneficial to people of all genders. This would include data collection and reporting which would inform about inequities within various systems such as employment and education. So far there has been a hearing in city hall where dozens of people advocated for women’s rights and urged Buffalo Common Council people to consider tabling this ordinance.
