Synopses & Reviews
Rebecca J. Cook and the contributors to this volume seek to analyze how international human rights law applies specifically to women in various cultures worldwide, and to develop strategies to promote equitable application of human rights law at the international, regional, and domestic levels. Their essays present a compelling mixture of reports and case studies from various regions in the world, combined with scholarly assessments of international law as these rights specifically apply to women.
"The book's embrace is gigantic. . . . Not only will Human Rights of Women appeal to a wide audience, it should be read by everyone who has any interest in human rights."--"Gender and Development"
