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.

International Women's Rights, Equality, and Justice could be used in a two or three credit specialized class, or as part of a general International Human Rights or Gender class. It also provides a useful collection of documents and overview of the law for policy makers.

This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific.
