The Quest for Freedom from Fear

(p.273) 11 Conclusion
The Struggle for Freedom from Fear

Alison Brysk

Oxford University Press

The gender gap in human security remains the most serious threat to the dignity and well-being of the world’s people in the 21st century. After examining patterns and cases of gender violence and response worldwide, what have we learned about how to bring half the world’s women toward freedom from fear? The concluding chapter will assess the record of action against gender violence in the cases visited, the promise and pitfalls of the pathways for reform, and the implications for women’s human rights campaigns. We will trace critical struggles for reproductive rights in global institutions, Ireland, Mexico, and a migrant family. This section will explore how the campaign to end violence against women can enhance all struggles for human dignity.

Keywords:   human rights, gender violence, reproductive rights, Ireland, Mexico, Philippines, abortion, contraception
