Abstract: The CEDAW Convention, which was adopted in 1979, recognizes a wide range of rights for women regarding non-discrimination and the eradication of gender violence. Together with CEDAW, its Committee and the Special Rapporteur on violence against women make sure that the scope of protection available to women at the normative level (de jure) is wide. However, when analyzing the enforcement mechanisms of CEDAW, which are the reporting procedure, the interstate procedure, the inquiry procedure and the individual complaints procedure, notorious limits of enforcement emerge (de facto). In addition, arguments such as the public/private divide or cultural relativism constitute further impediments for women in order to achieve full equality. Given these constraints, this paper develops four proposals that would contribute towards the goal of implementation.
