The principles of equality and non-discrimination are at the very core of
international human rights law. Over thirty years have passed since the
adoption of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and fifteen years gone by since commitments were undertaken to eliminate discrimination in the context of the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing.
