Women’s and Children’s Rights:Making the connection”

The publication “Women’s and Children’s Rights: Making the connection,” a joint effort by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), makes a case for linking the human rights of women to those of children. Today, these rights are still treated in an isolated manner, while there are actually practical arguments for considering them together, in particular because many human rights violations against women directly affect children and vice versa.

Linking them together would support efforts to promote the human rights of adolescent girls, to eliminate child marriage, to prevent the spread of HIV and to reduce maternal mortality.
