The Gendering of Human Rights in the International Systems of Law in the Twentieth Century

Jean H. Quataert

Published by the American Historical Association

Essays on Global and Comparative History

Quataert examines the historiography of human rights and shows that the human rights system of international laws and institutions developed out of a clearly defined set of historical struggles: a result from above-level legal changes responding to pressures and interventions from below-level grassroots organizations.
