It provides practical guidance on how to address them across justice systems and within the contexts of: marriage, family and property rights; ending violence against women; and women in conflict with the law, with special reference to programming at country level. It reaffirms the importance of justice for women through a range of examples of innovative programming, grounded in a human rights approach and builds on three mutually reinforcing programmatic entry points: (i) reforming formal and informal legal norms, policies and budgets that discriminate against women; (ii) reforming justice institutions with a view to making them effective, accountable and gender-responsive; and (iii) legally empowering women. This three-pronged approach provides both women as rights-holders and justice institutions as duty-bearers with the tools for transformative justice. Designed primarily for staff of the United Nations system, the Toolkit presents a menu of options for responding to the current deficits in women’s access to justice programming and the growing demand for technical assistance in this area. It consolidates and complements existing resources and aims at stimulating bolder gender-responsive justice interventions for the full realization of the rights of women and girls in all countries.

This Toolkit demonstrates that challenging as they are, these barriers are not insurmountable. It provides practical guidance on how to address them across justice systems and within the contexts of: marriage, family and property rights; ending violence against women; and women
in conflict with the law, with special reference to programming at country level.
