No to gender inequality, Yes to women's rights

"Confronting Sexual Violence in Conflict Situations" provides comprehensive information on international laws and global policies related to sexual violence in both conflict and post-conflict situations, and promotes their use as tools that women can utilize in organizing with others to claim their rights. It also contains selected resources, key contacts, an annotated guide to international conventions and policy documents, and charts showing which countries have ratified the different conventions.

The handbook is extracted from a longer publication entitled Women Claiming Justice: Using International Law in Conflict and Post-Conflict Situations (forthcoming). This covers several other areas that are important to women who are experiencing conflict or involved in rebuilding their societies after conflict: economic and social rights, refugees and internally displaced women, and special protection for girls.
