This chapter discusses the significance of the 2008 Amnesty International Report on Human Rights for human and women's rights issues. The report recognized the lack of global leadership to eradicate gender violence and maintained that women in almost all regions of the world suffer from high degrees of sexual violence. Prior to the release of this report, gender-specific issues had already been addressed at the 1993 Vienna World Conference on Human Rights, leading to the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
