Violence against Women under International Human Rights Law: Alice Edwards


Ending violence against women: from words to action : study of the secretary-general

Violence against women is a form of discrimination and a violation of human rights. It causes untold misery, cutting short lives and leaving countless women living in pain and fear in every country in the world. This study calls for efforts to eradicate violence against women to become a higher priority at the local, national and international level. The study identifies ways to close the gap between States’ obligations under international norms, standards and policies and their inadequate and inconsistent implementation at the national level. Publishing Agency: United Nations.


Violence Against Women: Alice Edwards

Since the mid-1990s, increasing international attention has been paid to the issue of violence against women; however, there is still no explicit international human rights treaty prohibition on violence against women and the issue remains poorly defined and understood under international human rights law. Drawing on feminist theories of international law and human rights, this critical examination of the United Nations’ legal approaches to violence against women analyses the merits of strategies which incorporate women’s concerns of violence within existing human rights norms such as equality norms, the right to life, and the prohibition against torture. Although feminist strategies of inclusion have been necessary as well as symbolically powerful for women, the book argues that they also carry their own problems and limitations, prevent a more radical transformation of the human rights system and ultimately reinforce the unequal position of women under international law.


Women’s Human Rights: Niamh Reilly

Womens Human Rights: Seeking Gender Justice in a Globalising Age explores the emergence of transnational, UN-oriented, feminist advocacy for womens human rights, especially over the past three decades.

It identifies the main feminist influences that have shaped the movement liberal, radical, third world and cosmopolitan and exposes how the Western, legalist, state-centric, and liberal biases of mainstream human rights discourse impede the realisation of human rights in womens lives everywhere.

The book traces the evolution of the womens human rights movement through an examination of its key issues, debates, and practical interventions in international law and policy arenas.


Women’s rights, human rights: international feminist perspectives: Julie Peters, Andrea Wolper

Under democracy and dictatorship, in times of war and times of peace, women’s human rights are violated daily and often systematically. Women may be denied the right to vote or hold office. They may be subjected to rape and sexual abuse by soldiers, police, employers, family members. They may not be free to choose when or whom to marry, or how many children to have and when to have them. The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaims that „all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” Yet women’s freedom, dignity and equality are persistently compromised by law and by custom in ways that men’s are not. The mere extension of existing human rights protection to women is insufficient: women’s rights must be understood as human rights.
„Women’s Rights, Human Rights” promises to be the most comprehensive and important book available on the subject of women’s human rights worldwide. It includes contributions by activists, journalists, lawyers and scholars from twenty-one countries. The essays map the directions the movement for women’s human rights is taking–and will take in the coming decades– and the concomitant transformation of prevailing notions of rights and issues. The volume addresses such topics as the rapes in former Yugoslavia and efforts to see that a War Crimes Tribunal responds; domestic violence; trafficking of women into the sex trade; the persecution of lesbians; female genital mutilation; and reproductive rights.
„Women’s Rights, Human Rights” provides original and much-needed perspectives that will take the crucial issue of women’s human rights through the nineties and beyond while articulating new agendas for dealing with them.
