The term gender is widely understood as refering to the socially constructed roles of men and women. It is different from biological sex. The lessons are gender issues in international criminal law extend beyond sexual violence crimes, recognising the varied forms of sexual violence during armed conflict, developing approaches to prosecuting sexual violence that take into account the unique circumstances of international criminal law, safeguarding the rights of victims during sexual violence cases and viewing the prosecution of crimes against women as one component of the larger redress equation.
