CEDAW


You have rights to use this International Law at the domestic level

The State of Australia ratified the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties 1969 on 13 June 1974 - Article 27 - "Internal law and the observance of treaties - A party may not invoke the provisions of its internal law as justification for its failure to perform a treaty.  This rule is without prejudice to article 46."

The State of Australia ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women on 28 July 1983.

Pursuant to CEDAW Article 4.1 – you have your basic female human rights to be heard under International Law at the domestic level in the Courts in the State of Australia.  Thus the combination of these two INTERNATIONAL LAWS, you have the right to proceed to state your case with the observance of these two treaties, being a subject of International Law CEDAW.
