Womens rights

Myanmar has signed the Convention for Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and endorsed a National Strategic Plan for the Advancement of Women (NSPAW) 2012-2021.

Yet a simple image from Oren Ginzberg's marvellous book The Hungry Man speaks volumes about some of the issues in the sustainable mainstreaming of gender. People not familiar enough with the Myanmar context make many of the policy decisions that guide national direction.

There remains an enormous need for mainstreaming of understanding on women's rights issues and how gender considerations affect every aspect of life.

Some of the specific reports, briefing papers and studies relevant to the topic are detailed in the resources in Other Sectors Library.
