This year we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights and the 30th anniversary of the 2nd
World Conference of Human Rights, which took place in Vienna in
June 1993. The two most memorable slogans from Vienna were “All
Human Rights for All”, the motto of the NGO Forum underlining the
universality, equality, interdependence and indivisibility of all human
rights, as well as “Women’s Rights are Human Rights”, one of the
most influential demands of NGOs. In retrospective, this might
seem surprising, as the equality of women had been strongly rooted
from the outset in the legal UN human rights framework, and the
Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against
Women (CEDAW), adopted in 1979 and having entered into force
in 1981, had become a milestone in the advancement of women’s
rights and the fight against gender-based discrimination. However,
while discrimination against women had been gradually eliminated
from domestic laws and women had increasingly gained access to
all human rights, including the rights to vote, to education, to marry
and to justice, the most egregious violations of women’s rights
continued to be practiced in the “private” sphere, be it in the family,
the work place or in society at large. In the UN system, rights of
women were dealt with in the Commission on the Status of Women
rather than in the Human Rights Commission, and the monitoring of
CEDAW by the CEDAW Committee was strictly separated from the
activities of other UN human rights treaty monitoring bodies.
The Vienna World Conference on Human Rights 1993 and the
4th World Conference on Women in Beijing 1995 symbolized a
paradigm shi! in the protection of human rights of women in the
“private” sphere, above all against domestic violence, all forms of
sexual harassment and gender based violence, traditional practices
such as Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), forced marriage, honour
killings, sati, the gender pay gap in business etc. In December 1993,
only half a year a!er Vienna, the UN General Assembly adopted the
Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women, and in
March 1994 the Human Rights Commission created the UN Special
Rapporteur on Violence against Women, which had a major impact
on the advancement of women’s rights and led to the adoption of
domestic laws on domestic and other forms of violence against
women and girls. Much has been achieved in making women’s rights
more equal to men’s rights, but much more needs to be done in
fighting for the full equality of women and against male dominance
in governments and politics, business, religion, the family and
society at large. That’s why this 9th edition of the Global Campus
Magazine and the Global Campus Human Rights Conversation on
8 March, marking the International Women’s Day, is dedicated to
strengthening the human rights of women.
This issue includes interviews to: Domenica Bumma, Laure De Dilectis, Ermelinda Damiano, Mahsa Kayyal.
