Forty-five foreign governments, including Tonga's primary aid donors, delivered their reviews and recommendations to the Government of Tonga at the United Nation’s 29th Session of Universal Periodic Review in Geneva, Switzerland this week. Most countries called on Tonga to ratify conventions and to “take steps to raise social awareness in understanding these instruments.", with some countries also urging Tonga to abolish the death penalty and to establish a Human Rights Institution.

Those who think that equality for all including women, can be accomplished without ratification of CEDAW, are deluded. ... People should march to the Palace to assure that the Constitution is solid against abortion and same-sex marriage ... not against CEDAW. - Sione Lousiale Kava

I have been following the controversy of the Ratification of CEDAW and am surprised with the reaction, especially from those who don’t support it now because they did support it then. - Sesilia Loloa-Wolff

The current incessant pressure applied by proponents to ratify CEDAW takes me back to Mary Fonua’s account (Feb. 12, 2015). She wrote that CEO Lōpeti Senituli assembled a group of educated and prominent ladies, as “relevant stakeholders” to decide the fate of CEDAW. - Sione Ake-mei-hakau Mokofisi.

The misconception around abortion and same-sex marriage is just a cover-up for attacks against CEDAW. We need to start talking about the real fears in people, particularly men who are in high positions of power and use these powers to control the masses - the real fear is about women and women's rights overall. The real fear is about giving up male privileges. If we want to talk open and honestly let's get down to business and stop using CEDAW as an excuse. - 'Ofa-Ki-Levuka Guttenbeil-Likiliki
