Primer on Women's Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

In collaboration with IWRAW Asia Pacific and COHRE's Women and Housing Program, ESCR-Net is pleased to present its new Primer on Women's Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.  The goal of this resource is to serve as an advocacy tool for engagement with the CEDAW and ESCR Committees to more explicitly recognize the implementation of ESCR as a strategy to increase women's equality. 

This resource is available for download in English, French, Arabic and Russian below. Also available in Spanish here.
