Progress of the World' s Women: In Pursuit of Justice

29.05.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

Through case studies, this report examines the legal system regarding women' s access to their rights. It emphasizes the importance of the role played by women legislators, lawyers and activists as agents of change within the legal system and the fact that, despite the legal reforms, the judicial system does not work for all women. The report focuses on four key fields: the legal and constitutional frameworks; the justice chain; the plural legal systems; and the conflict and post-conflict contexts.
