    The Government of the State of Eritrea ratified the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1995. Since its establishment in 1979 the National Union of Eritrean Women (NUEW) played a major role in empowering the Eritrean women and fostering their participation in the national liberation movement and social justice.
