The Swedish Women’s Lobby has translated the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) to legible Swedish so that more people can access the information about women’s rights. The legible version is available both as a brochure and as an audio version.
In the translated version we include the 16 main articles of CEDAW and it can be used by people with limited knowledge of Swedish, impaired vision, dyslexia or by students. All the material is free to use for workshops, discussions, training or other educational activities.
You can find the brochure here.
