Women's ESC Rights

In partnership with ESCR-Net, we released a publication entitled ‘The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights at 50: The Significance from a Women’s Rights Perspective.’ The publication celebrates the significance of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights from the perspective of advancing and ensuring gender equality and simultaneously points to ways in which the treaty can be utilized even more strategically and effectively to ensure that women’s ESC rights are fully respected, protected and fulfilled towards the goal of achieving gender equality.
