This third volume emphasises the personal empowerment of women -- including reproductive, sexual, and property rights -- in the specific regional and cultural contexts of the Middle East, Palestine, Eastern Europe, the United States, Australia, and Africa. The human rights ramifications of the role of women in various religious traditions (Islam, Christian, Hindu, Baha'i and others), and the rights of specific groups of women (eg children, refugees, widows, indigenous women, and the disabled) are all examined. This volume also includes discussions of women during armed combat, women and the IMF, and women's rights and maritime/admiralty law, among other special studies.
