> Center for Reproductive Rights, June 2005, 25 p, (pdf)

The Protocol on the Rights of Women in Africa, (adopted by the African Union in July 2003) provides broad protection for women’s human rights, including their sexual and reproductive rights. This briefing paper outlines the significations of this treaty and the way advocates can use it to pressure governments to address issues which threaten women’s health and rights in Africa. Furthermore, “it provides detailed information that can help African women use the protocol to exercise their reproductive rights, and suggests ways that governments can implement the protocol’s landmark provisions.” The paper could also be considered useful reading for advocates outside Africa who are seeking to establish similar guarantees.
