The global recognition of the unjust discrimination and violence that women, particularly women in developing countries, have been subjected has led to the adoption of numerous international legal instruments that underscored the importance of the human rights of women. This country report identifies Ethiopian laws that do not conform to internationally accepted standards. It also examines legal and regulatory reform as a critical tool for promoting gender-sensitive human development in Africa, highlights problems related to law enforcement mechanisms, and proposes alternative solutions.
