Marcia Bandes, a TMC representative to The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) local committee joins host John Haer this month. Bandes discusses a recent special meeting at Pittsburgh City Council and subsequent public hearing, called to adopt the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), an international treaty adopted in 1979 by the United Nations General Assembly.
