Law versus society: a conflict which violates the human rights of women

By Filipe Lins dos Santos


The law as rule of law, has a direct correlation to society in terms of its applicability, since certain rights can be denied or mitigated depending on how the rule could be interpreted to social context, then human rights norms broad can be reduced from the way a group is inserted and is stigmatized. This reality is experienced by women who are experiencing a conflict between the applicability and effectiveness of rights due to the symbolic and discursive structures in the community. Thus the aim of this paper is to discuss the conflict between law enforcement and its effectiveness as a result of a social attitude to a vulnerable group
