Offer: Call for Communications: allegations of human rights violations affecting the status of women

Any individual, non-governmental organization, group or network may submit communications (complaints/appeals/petitions) to the Commission on the Status of Women containing information relating to alleged violations of human rights that affect the status of women in any country in the world. The Commission on the Status of Women considers such communications as part of its annual programme of work in order to identify emerging trends and patterns of injustice and discriminatory practices against women for purposes of policy formulation and development of strategies for the promotion of gender equality.

Accurate and detailed information relating to the promotion of women's rights in political, economic, civil, social and educational fields in any country anywhere in the world.

It is advisable that communications should:

Identify as far as possible the woman victim, or women victims
Indicate clearly where (the particular country/several countries) the alleged violation(s) or pattern of violations have occurred or are occurring
Provide, when available, dates and circumstances of the alleged violations
Explain the context by providing relevant background information
Provide, when available, copies of documentation
