Chapter Summary

International law deals with rules applicable to States or inter-State relations. Womens human rights are the subject of a very wide range of treaties. Some of these treaties deal exclusively or mainly with womens rights, of general character. This chapter discusses some historical facts and the most important figures in relation to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). The analysis made in the chapter had as a primary goal to present the first actor or force in the interaction which in general terms can be labeled as womens needs, but which in fact took a form of an analysis of womens rights as reflected by international law. The fact is that a great part of these needs as expressed by feminist movements was able to make itself heard and accepted by public international law and by human rights law more specifically.
