Abstract

This chapter aims at setting the agenda for the analysis of State responsibility under human rights law for violence against women as an expression of structural discrimination. It therefore discusses terminologies applied within the context of violence against women, theories on the causes of violence against women, as well as legal and philosophical concepts of discrimination and equality.
