GENDER AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Consistently, the level of access to human rights- whether political, civil, economic, social or cultural- is determined by gender. Violence against women, obstructions of the right to sexual self-determination and insufficient political participation are only some of the human rights violations that manifest a strong gender aspect. Similarly, women are particularly affected by sexual violence carried out during wartime or violent conflicts. ECCHR looks for ways to pursue gender-specific proceedings in order to dismantle fixed gender stereotypes and the discrimination they facilitate.
