From Rights to Action: Using International rights and mechanisms on violence against women in the UK

Published as part of the Rights of Women toolkit, this new handbook is a practical introduction to the international human rights law, policies, and mechanisms relevant to combating violence against women. It seeks to shed light on the law around human rights and empower organisations working to promote women's rights to apply human rights to their work in order to influence law, policy and practice on violence against women, thus promising to be a vital resource for NGOs working to support women affected by violence in the UK.
