In the Shadow of the Junta

By Women's League of Burma  •  November 1, 2008

A report compiled by the Women’s League of Burma and member organizations, focusing on the problems faced by women and girls in rural areas, including ethnic lands, as a result of armed conflict.

After signing the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 1997, Burma’s military regime submitted reports to the CEDAW Committee in 1997 and 2007. This Shadow Report seeks to address issues that were not adequately documented by the junta in those reports.
