"This book covers women's rights to health, housing, social security, land, food, water and basic services, education and work and also explores these rights through a cross-cutting examination of the girl child's rights and customary law. Chapters focus on the South African context, legislation and jurisprudence but also discuss the role of international human rights law in the area of women's social and economic rights. A framework chapter offers a conceptual approach to 'engendering' social and economic rights rather than simply extending them in a gender neutral way to women"--Provided by publisher.
