CLADEM (Comité de América Latina y El Caribe para la Defensa de los Derechos de la Mujer; Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean for the Defense of Women's Rights) is an international NGO network of women’s organizations and activists.[1] It was established July 3, 1987, in San José, Costa Rica. It was developed after discussions in 1985 at the 3rd World Conference on Women of the United Nations in Nairobi where attendees noted a need for regionally based strategies in order to boost advocacy in Latin America and the Caribbean. Since 1995, it has held Category II Consulting Status at the United Nations, and since 2002, it has participated in Organization of American States matters.[2]
