This work examines the international instruments that deal with the human rights of women and, in addition, the specifically African experience in trying to implement them. Beginning with an analysis of human rights and gender issues, standards of equality, the work of the United Nations, and other specialized agencies, the discussion moves on to the European human rights system in comparison with other regional instruments.;The book then focuses on the legal and administrative systems in African countries through which standards are implemented nationally and monitored internationally. Specific topics such as female genital mutilation, human rights of women in armed conflict, refugee women as well as women and Islam are discussed. The book aims to better equip human rights workers, teachers, lawyers, civil servants, community leaders, students and academics; preparing them to address cases of inequality, and contribute to women's empowerment by making more effective use of existing international standards.
