APPLICATION OF CEDAW AT THE DOMESTIC LEVEL

I am a subject of named the “Conventional on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women” – hereafter referred to as CEDAW.

 

As a subject of CEDAW, I hereby invoke CEDAW Article 4.1 whereby I have been given “de-facto” and “de jure” equality.

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

 

Pursuant to the application of these aforementioned treaties – I invoke CEDAW Article 15 – Equality in legal and civil matters 1 and 2 for a right to be heard in the State of Australia Court re my application under the INTERNATIONAL LAW.

I hereby invoke CEDAW Article 11 – Equality in employment and labour rights – (d) the right to equal remuneration, including benefits, and to equal treatment in respect of work of equal value, as well as equality in the treatment in the evaluation of the quality of work.

 

I hereby request the Court of the State of Australia bestow on me equal remuneration and treatment as that enjoyed by my male counterparts under the said treaties as aforementioned in this application. 

 

Then state your case under INTERNATIONAL LAW.
