Abstract The Sex Discrimination Act: a twenty year review - a major impetus for the passage of the Sex Discrimination Act (SDA) was Australia's ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women(CEDAW) - implementation of CEDAW through the Sex Discrimination Act (SDA) has been a mixed story - many amendments to the SDA have been positive, such as strengthening indirect discrimination provisions - SDA does not constitute the statutory guarantee of equality for women required by art 2 of CEDAW - Australia has failed to accept major elements of the CEDAW package through reservations to the treaty.
