The term women’s rights refers to freedoms and entitlements of women and girls of all ages. These rights may or may not be institutionalized, ignored or suppressed by law, local custom, and behavior in a particular society. These liberties are grouped together and differentiated from broader notions of human rights because they often differ from the freedoms inherently possessed by or recognized for men and boys, and because activists for this issue claim an inherent historical and traditional bias against the exercise of rights by women and girls.
This handbook on the protection of human rights concerning women contains the main international treaties and regulation that are currently in effect. It includes an in-depth research of the convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women. It provides the reader with the most essential international legal instruments available in women’s rights, and therefore is a very valuable tool in any legal collection.
