Chapter 5: Gender equality: international law and national constitutions
Restricted access

This chapter will examine a range of different constitutional settings and consider the various methods for incorporating gender equality rights, using international human rights law as the legal and normative framework for evaluating different methods of constitutional design. However, in recognizing the existence of limitations within the international legal framework for protecting human rights in domestic legal systems, the chapter will also explore one of the major gaps in international human rights law that particularly affects women – the absence of any formal recognition of the vulnerability of women against the realities of a global ageing population.
