Summary
"The stark reality is that throughout the world, women disproportionately live in poverty. This indicates that gender can both cause and perpetuate poverty, but this is a complex and cross-cutting relationship. In addition to this, the full enjoyment of human rights is routinely denied to women who live in poverty. How can human rights respond and alleviate gender-based poverty? This monograph...examines the potential of equality and non-discrimination in international law to redress gender-based poverty. It offers an...assessment of how the international human rights treaties-specifically the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), which contains no obligations on poverty- can be interpreted and used to address gender-based poverty. An interpretation of CEDAW that incorporates the harms of gender-based poverty can spark a global dialogue. [This book makes a] contribution to that dialogue, arguing that the CEDAW should serve as an authoritative international standard setting exercise that can activate international accountability mechanisms and inform the domestic interpretation of human rights."--
