Kicking Off Women’s History Month, Grosso Introduces Bill to Ensure Gender Equity in DC

On March 3, 2015, Council member David Grosso introduces a bill to achieve gender equity by implementing CEDAW, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1979, signed by US President Jimmy Carter but was never ratified by the U.S. nor seven other countries.  It requires gender analysis reporting on DC government agencies to measure equity based on gender in their operations, as well as a citywide plan to address any gaps that are identified.
