Every Woman Treaty’s Global Working Group is developing the treaty’s core platform, the language and framework that will be used to draft the treaty. The group spent a year collaborating with additional experts on what should be in the treaty, producing 16 policy memos that detail each committee’s recommendation on treaty language, definitions, and requirements. The final policy memos comprise 500-plus pages and were used by a global group of human rights lawyers to develop a working draft of the core platform. The draft is being peer-reviewed by an additional 2,000-plus experts worldwide.
