Description

Human rights belong to everyone, yet horrific violations occur on a daily basis against women in homes, workplaces, communities and civic institutions. In many countries, abuses are as blatant as withholding women’s legal rights under the law, including the right to hold down a job, own or inherit property and to seek protection from violence.

Countries that respect human rights are more politically stable and economically competitive than those that subordinate women. Research studies have shown that efforts to achieve equality for women lead to greater economic growth in developed countries and the lack of empowerment of women as one of the primary causes of the development gap between developed and least developed countries.

This book describes the human rights and fundamental freedoms of women and provides an overview on several issues that need to be considered with respect to women’s human rights. It emphasizes the gaps between the women’s agenda and the human rights agenda and argues that a merger of the two is important and should become a priority in the work of both women’s and human rights organizations. The book would be of use to administrators, academicians, researchers, political elite, voluntary organizations, and all others, who are interested in women development and empowerment.
