Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the optional protocol to the Convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women, which is adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 6 October 1999. It describes 21 articles agreed by the States Parties to the present Protocol. The States Parties agreed upon the articles by noting that the Charter of the United Nations reaffirms faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women. The States Parties recall the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, in which the States Parties thereto condemn discrimination against women in all its forms and agree to pursue by all appropriate means and without delay a policy of eliminating discrimination against women.
