Using Human rights norms to advance the human rights of women: a compilation of case law. The last two decades have seen major advances in the legal protection of the human rights of women around the world. A series of international and national court cases has developed an important body of jurisprudence that has been relied on by courts and advocates in many countries to support the women's claims for equality and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Growing out of a series of judicial colloquia organised by the Commonwealth Secretariat, this compilation brings together a selection of over 50 significant cases from international and national courts, in full text or edited format and grouped by theme, in which courts have used international human rights norms and national constitutional standards to contribute to women's equality.

The compilation includes cases decided under United Nations human rights treaties, the European and American Conventions on Human Rights and other international instruments, as well as cases decided by national courts in Asia, Africa, Europe, Australasia, and North America. A detailed Introduction summarises the significance of the cases and providing references to many other relevant and other material on issues of women's human rights.

The compilation was the result of a joint project between the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Centre for Comparative and Public Law of the Faculty of Law, The University of Hong Kong.
