Traylor Earns CEDAW Award

October 13, 2011

Associate Director of International Programs Julianne Cartwright Traylor will be presented the Legacy CEDAW Women’s Human Rights Award from the Friends of the San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women on Oct. 17.

The award is bestowed to those who have shown extraordinary vision and leadership in promoting the principles of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), an international human rights treaty.

"I report with pride that Julianne Traylor will be receiving the Legacy CEDAW Women’s Human Rights Award,” USF School of Law Dean Jeffrey Brand said. “I am constantly amazed at how much we all do at the law school and really amazed how time still allows for the work exemplified by Julianne’s well-deserved honor."

With Traylor’s efforts, San Francisco City and County became the first local governmental entity in the world to adopt the provisions of the CEDAW treaty. Traylor has assisted the work of the San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women in the implementation of the city ordinance in the public and private sectors. She also helped organize and participated in events related to the Women and the Economy Summit during the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference held in San Francisco in September.

"I have attended the Friends of the San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women award ceremonies in the past but I never thought that I would be considered for one of them," Traylor said.

Karen Kai ’78 will also be presented with the Culture CEDAW Women’s Human Rights Award at the Oct. 17 ceremony.
