Women's bill 'unites' Iran and US


news.bbc.co.uk

Iran and the US are two of only eight countries that have not joined the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (Cedaw).

It seems that US opposition is based on constitutional grounds.

I'd be interested to hear how this affects the constitution.
