"Fragmented Protection of Women's Rights in Conflict: an Introduction The regulation of women's rights in conflict has travelled a great distance since initial feminist interventions into international law, which identified a 'masculine world' of international law with reinforcing organisational and normative structural factors that excluded women from its practice and women's lives from its areas of concern. States have agreed to limit the lawful conduct of armed conflict - including against female combatants and civilians - under international humanitarian law (IHL), and provided for international criminal jurisdiction over individuals bearing greatest responsibility for the most serious violations of these laws perpetrated against women. The extent to which states can limit the human rights of women, even in times of violent conflict, has been negotiated, litigated and interpreted in various instruments, consensus and interpretative documents grouped under international human rights law (IHRL)"-- Provided by publisher.
