• Women and Gender
      One of the central principles human rights law has established is that all human beings, women included, are equal and should not be subjected to discrimination. Gender equality, then can/should be understood as a human right.  Human rights standards in treaties such as the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) provide detailed guidance on specific measures that need to be undertaken at the national level to realize women’s rights and advance gender equality.
