妇女儿童的权益

Women-Children_final

在一个分割的世界中,妇女和儿童的权利往往彼此孤立地得到促进。这本宣传手册的目的是探讨这两个群体之间的人权联系,将两者结合起来考虑的实际意义,以及四个战略行动领域。

这本小册子写给联合国和其他发展实践者,展示了歧视和其他侵犯妇女人权的行为如何影响儿童,反之亦然。它还说明了如何利用两项处理妇女和儿童权利的国际条约以及监督这些条约的委员会来有效解决四个主要的发展问题:促进少女的人权,消除童婚,防止艾滋病毒的传播和降低孕产妇死亡率。

性别平等和保护人权,特别是儿童和最弱势群体的人权,是联合国的基本原则。这些权利涉及联合国工作的所有方面,对于长期进展至关重要,包括实现千年发展目标。

In a compartmentalized world, the rights of women and those of children have often been promoted in isolation from one another. The purpose of this advocacy booklet is to explore the human rights links between these two groups, the practical implications of considering them together, and four areas for strategic action.

Written for UN and other development practitioners, the booklet shows how discrimination and other human rights violations against women affect children and vice versa. It also shows how the two international treaties addressing the rights of women and children and the committees that monitor them can be used to effectively address four major development issues: promoting the human rights of adolescent girls, eliminating child marriage, preventing the spread of HIV and reducing maternal mortality.

Gender equality and the protection of human rights, especially of children and those most vulnerable, are fundamental principles of the United Nations. These rights cut across all aspects of the UN’s work and are crucial to long-term progress, including achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
