New handbook on gender-responsive legislation



This Handbook aims to serve as a resource for lawmakers from around the world for designing gender-responsive laws. Such law-making should address the strategic needs of women and girls and must encompass the enactment of new laws, amending or repealing laws which are outdated, are inconsistent with constitutions, or discriminate against them. The Handbook was prepared in close  consultation with parliamentarians from across different legal systems of the world, combined with a desk review of relevant literature.
