Women's human rights : the international and comparative law casebook
Many human rights advocates still do not see women's rights as human rights. Yet women in many countries suffer from laws, practices, customs, and cultural and religious norms that consign them to a deeply inferior status. Advocates might conceive of human rights as involving torture, extrajudicial killings, or cruel and degrading treatment--all clearly in violation of international human rights--and think those issues irrelevant to women. Yet is female genital mutilation, practiced on millions of young girls and even infants, not a gross violation of human rights? When a family decides to murder a daughter in the name of "honor," is that not an extrajudicial killing? Ross examines international and regional human rights treaties, including treaty language and the jurisprudence and general interpretive guidelines developed by human rights bodies. She studies how international human rights law has been and can be implemented at the domestic level through local courts and legislatures.
