About the product

This comprehensive reference work chronicles the ground-breaking efforts of the United Nations in promoting recognition of women's fundamental human rights, codifying those rights in legally binding international agreements and fostering greater understanding of women's central role in peace-building and in economic and social development. The more that 100 conventions, declarations and other key documents reproduced in this volume demonstrate how the Organization's focus has expanded beyond political and family life to include such urgent issues as poverty, violence against women and equal access to education, employment and health care.
