The Women's Watch is published by the International Women's Rights Action Watch (IWRAW), a global network that monitors implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). This September 1997 issue focuses on the Taliban discrimination of women in Kabul, Afghanistan, ever since they took over in 1996. IWRAW announced that they would maintain pressure to withhold recognition of the Taliban government in any forum until the Taliban authorities recognize the human rights of women. IWRAW will also continue to monitor developments in Afghanistan and the UN. Furthermore, this issue presents policy changes and developments in countries all over the world in accordance with the convention articles of the CEDAW. The reports were outlined under human rights and discrimination; violence against women; political and public life; health and reproductive rights; employment; and marriage and family law. Lastly, this issue briefly discussed the 17th session of the CEDAW.
