In Pursuit of Justice: A Few Words on the UN Women Report

Labour Party

Last week the recently establised UN agency UN Women published ‘In Pursuit of Justice’, a flagship report surveying women’s access to justice across the globe. Whilst it is clear that international agencies are increasingly recognising that the fight against gender inequality warrants far greater investment, progress has been slow and there is much work to be done if changes in legal status are to be translated into substantive improvements in the the quality of women’s lives. Here I discuss some of the issues emerging from the report and comment on the work the European Parliament is doing to address enduring inequalities.
