Preliminary report submitted by the Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences, Ms. Radhika Coomaraswamy by Radhika Coomaraswamy( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Special Rapporteur on violence against women, Ms. Radhika Coomaraswamy from Sri Lanka, was appointed by the Commission on Human Rights in its resolution 1994/45 of March 1994, with the mandate "to seek and receive information on violence against women, its causes and consequences" and "to respond effectively to such information", as well as to "recommend measures, ways and means, at the national, regional and international levels, to eliminate violence against women and its causes and to remedy its consequences". This preliminary report of the Special Rapporteur provides a comprehensive survey of the problematic of violence against women as it stands today, whilst drawing historical parallels between military sexual slavery committed during the Second World War and the use of systematic rape as weapon of war in the territories of the former Yugoslavia. The Special Rapporteur sets the framework of her report by analysing the nature of the problem, linking women's particular vulnerability to violence to historically unequal power relations, the desire to control female sexuality and ideologies justifying the subordinate position of women. The resulting gender-based violence, which denies women the full realisation of their human rights, is further exacerbated by the often prevailing traditional doctrines of privacy, patterns of conflict resolution, and finally government inaction that allow for violence to continue unabated. After exploring the existing international legal standards with regard to violence against women, the Special Rapporteur addresses violence against women within the family, including domestic violence and traditional practices affecting the health of women and children, such as female genital mutilation, son preference and early childhood marriage. The report then discusses various types of violence against women occurring within the community, such as rape and sexual assault, sexual harassment, forced prostitution and trafficking, pornography and violence against women migrant workers. As priority concerns the Special Rapporteur further identifies violence against women perpetrated and/or condoned by the State, including violence against women in situations of armed conflict, as well as violence against refugee and internally displaced women. This report intends to provide a basis for the Special Rapporteur's future reports which will focus on a more in-depth analysis of violence against women in the family and the community (1996) and violence condoned and/or perpetrated by the State (1997). As such only preliminary recommendations are offered in this study, with the aim of developing comprehensive recommendations and conclusions for the elimination of violence against women, comprising both legal and non-legal strategies
