What is a Coalition?

Coalitions are often the main advocates for women's rights acting on behalf of or with women and young people in the realization of their rights. Credibility and authority gained from a collective membership generally outweighs individual action. Coalitions provide a focus for human rights work by acting for change and share concerns for the advancement of women's wellbeing, as outlined in the CEDAW Convention. http://www.un.org/womenwatch/daw/cedaw/cedaw.htm
