Bulletins Bulletin : Published and Discussed
Date: Wednesday, February 06, 2002
From: RANA RAHMAN
Subject:
Women and International law
Description:


International law, in the human rights area, is dominated by its public nature> this means that it relates primarily to public events or activities> the area of private activities is left to national laws> unfortunately this aspects of international law means that only public issues gain credibility or attention in international law debate. In the area oh human rights this has some important ramifications, particularly for women.
Torture is a prime example of the way that international law discriminative against women. The definition of torture used in the convention against refers to pain or suffering inflicted by the public official. Many women do suffer torture of this kind but the area where women suffer most is the domestic violent, violent pornography and female genital mutilation are not recognised by the convention against torture, as torture. This is because they are not inflicted by the state.
The private areas of life are the areas where women are most active the home, work. The domination of men has led to a severe lack of protection through international law for activities in the private area, particularly in issues affecting women. When is it left to national law and where the national law makers are inevitably man, it is not surprising that there is lack of protection for women (mainly in Asia, Africa and Latin America.) and even where such legal protection exists, it is really enforced.RANA,human rights activist

It’s not that simple! Sex industries in countries like Thailand thrive on tourists from the developed countries where they have stringent laws to protect the women! This again proves that law does not address the causes of a problem, it only attempts to minimize the symptoms. A change in attitude is the viable solution in the long run for such problems.
