International Women\u27s Rights, Equality, and Justice: A Context and Practice

By Christine Venter

Abstract

International Women’s Rights, Equality and Justice explores the history and development of women’s rights in the context of international human rights law. From the 1848 Seneca Declaration to the 1979 Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) to the present day, women’s struggles for rights, freedom from discrimination, and equality are canvassed.The book details gender based claims brought in domestic courts, as well as those brought in regional or international fora, and explores the various remedies available, depending on where a claim is adjudicated. The text also canvasses the important contributions of NGOs, and challenges students to think about tactical, strategic, contextual and pragmatic choices that lawyers are called on to make when representing clients. Along with excerpts of cases and briefs, the text includes samples of complaint forms and instructions.http://scholarship.law.nd.edu/law_books/1037/thumbnail.jp
