Tapora and Sarah, two women from Papua New Guinea, report to the UN's CEDAW Committee

From AI Australia: Tapora and Sarah, two women from Papua New Guinea, visit New York to report to the UN's Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).

Violence against women in Papua New Guinea is widespread, and the PNG Government has failed to take adequate action. The visit was paid for by the donations of Amnesty International supporters.
