Posted 6/15/02, 12:00 am
A 20-year old United Nations treaty lauded by feminists is scheduled to receive a hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on June 13. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) has taken the lead in pushing for U.S. ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) Treaty. The Family Research Council is urging the White House to register its opposition to the treaty at the hearing.
