Gender Justice, Development, and Rights

Diane Elson

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the links between neo-liberal economic policies and women’s substantive enjoyment of human rights. It examines the association between two different discourses: human rights and economic efficiency, and the experience of women, particularly poor women in the era of neo-liberal economic policies. Alternative approaches to economic policy that would promote social justice for poor women are considered.

Keywords:   gender justice, social justice, poor women, human rights, social rights, neo-liberal economic policies
