1) #CEDAWPeoplesTribunal are delighted that long time advocate of women's rights Annette Lawson @AnnetteLawson1 UK Civil Society Women’s Alliance (UKCSWA) took part in Dr Davina Lloyd's livestream interview series on our Facebook page >>…?
2) Annette Lawson @AnnetteLawson1 talking about her life & work with UKCSWA, @NAWOorg & @JudithTrust with Dr Davina Lloyd on #CEDAWPeoplesTribunal Facebook

"#CEDAW needed more than ever & will be transformative for women & girls now & in the future "

@AnnetteLawson1 discusses the casual #genderInequality & #Discrimination she experienced.

Overheard from a father after she won a race, aged 7, as one of only 2 girls in her brothers prep school

"What's a girl doing running in the race never mind winning it "
3) In academia despite having higher qualifications

" I was never promoted to a senior level post"

Moved to usa & got to know feminist group at women's faculty, Stamford & UC Berkeley

"First time felt supported & experienced sisterhood"

40 yrs of human rights work followed.
A recent govt dept merger on 2/9/20 purports to improve women's equality & promote women empowerment

"yet the govt appointments are made up of 4 men & 2 women how can that be deemed representative "

Not really in spirit of #CEDAW
If #CEDAW was in domestic law TSM's could be used to challenge this, level the playing field and this incomparable split of governing of the merged departments could have been prevented.

"I fully support enshrining #CEDAW in domestic law "
