For the love of our mothers

I was born in a country (Bulgaria) which ratified the global treaty on women’s rights (CEDAW) at its inception but now I live in one of the eight countries (Iran, Nauru, Palau, Qatar, Somalia, Sudan, Tonga, USA) which has not ratified it yet. If you can guess which country I live in and you happen to live in the same country, please call your senators at 202-224-3121 and tell them that for the love of their mother at least, they should ratify the CEDAW treaty for the Rights of Women today!

As long as women are prevented from attaining their highest possibility, so long will men be unable to achieve the greatness which might be theirs.
— ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
