Women and Right to Food

On the occasion of Women’s day on the 8 March 2008, the Right to Food Unit is pleased to announce the publication of a right to food study on:
Women and the Right to Food – International Law and State Practice

The study looks at the right to food in the context of gender discrimination. It includes a brief overview of the position of women's right to food in international law and identifies gaps in both law and practice.

Controversial issues are discussed such as: to what extent are women’s hunger and food insecurity a matter of health alone and not one of life, survival and development? to what extent is denial of food for women a matter of violation of ‘mothers’ rights’, or of ‘children’s rights’ rather than one of women’s rights? to what extent are food insecurity and eating disorders a matter of health and disease, or of violation of human rights?

The study can be downloaded from our website free of charge

Forget yourself for others, and others will never forget you.
