The Best Way for Senators to Celebrate Mothers Day

Dear Senators Warner and Webb,

As you know, this Sunday is Mothers Day here in the US. Please celebrate it with your fellow Senators by ratifying the Women\’s Treaty, known as CEDAW (the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women).

It means a lot to a lot of people in Charlottesville, Virginia, the United States and the World.  If nothing else, it\’d be a chance to distinguish ourselves from Iran, one of the only other countries not to have signed on.
