This publication presents papers contributed by senior judges, lawyers, academics and representatives of international and non-government organisations involved in promoting the human rights of women and the girl-child. It provides an overview of international and regional human rights standards relevant to the human rights of women, highlights the importance of using a gender perspective in judicial decision-making, examines challenges involved in promoting the human rights of women and the girl-child in domestic litigation, and explores ways in which international human rights standards can be relied on to ensure gender equality at the national level.

Equality Jurisprudence under Commonwealth Caribbean Constitutions Litigation relating to the Human Rights of Women
