Even though Taiwan is not an official member nation of the United Nations and thus was unable to file the instrument of accession to the CEDAW in the office of the UN Secretary-General, nevertheless, we are intent on achieving the goal of fully protecting women’s rights and meeting the standards of the international community that the convention represents. Thus the Enforcement Act of Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women was formulated and announced by the president in June 2011; this allowed the content of the CEDAW to be incorporated into the law of Taiwan and have consequent legal effect. In addition, every four years, we invite international experts in the field to Taiwan to conduct a review of our national CEDAW report, which continually examines and improves upon administrative policy related to the rights of women.
