Developing the Right to Social Security - A Gender Perspective

Beth Goldblatt, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia Series: Routledge Research in Human Rights Law

Social security and its articulation as a human right have received increased attention in recent years and it is widely acknowledged that women are disproportionately affected by poverty in all parts of the world. This book identifies the need to develop the right to social security to ensure that it is responsive to gender discrimination and disadvantage. Drawing on feminist theory the book formulates a conceptual approach and a set of principles for a substantively equal, gendered right to social security. The book applies the framework it develops to a study of international law looking at the work of the UN, before analysing three countries South Africa, Australia and India.
