- Gender — Sexual orientation — Reproductive freedom — Gross violations — Women, rights
This chapter examines the inter-American system’s response to gender-based human rights violations, particularly the Commission and Court’s jurisprudence on violence and discrimination against women, and women’s access to social, economic, procedural, civil, political, and reproductive justice. It reviews the 1994 Inter-American Convention on the Prevention, Punishment, and Eradication of Violence against Women, also known as the “Belém do Pará” Convention. It also considers the Commission’s role in developing the inter-American system’s jurisprudence on gender and on women’s rights, in individual cases, thematic reports, and through Rapporteurships on the Rights of Women and on the Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Intersex Persons (LGBTI).
