In celebration of International Women's Day (March 8th), gbg has been working in conjunction with attorney and persona extraordinaire Holly Houston planning events to raise awareness and support for the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).  Thanks to the hard work of the Louisville Coalition for CEDAW, Louisville has become only the second city in the United States (after San Francisco) to have passed a resolution based upon CEDAW principles (to find out more, please click "You just made history!").  Stay tuned!
