July 29, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett | Trinidad scholar Professor Rhoda Reddock has been re-elected to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women for another 3 years.
Professor Rhoda Reddock is the first national of the twin-island republic to have been elected to the committee since Trinidad and Tobago became a party to the Convention.
She was one of 23 candidates competing last month for the 12 vacancies on the committee for the 20-23 to 20-26 period.
Announcing Professor Reddock’s re-election, the Ministry of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs congratulated her on her magnificent achievement. As a member of the committee from 20-23, she will join 22 other independent international experts in monitoring the progress made by states in the implementation of the Convention.
