Court Companion on Gender-Based Violence Cases
Aziz, Zarizana Abdul; Sicangco, Maria Cecilia T. | January 0009
Affecting one in three women in the world, gender-based violence is pervasive but invisible. Social taboos, patriarchal norms, and gender-unsensitized legal frameworks prevent victims from attaining justice. The Court Companion on Gender-Based Violence Cases guides judges, prosecutors, and other justice sector stakeholders in making justice more accessible to gender-based violence victims. It navigates both international law and Pakistan’s domestic legal framework to provide a nuanced analysis of applicable legal norms, with a practical perspective. This publication is for anyone interested in pursuing justice, holding perpetrators accountable, and providing effective redress and reparation to victims of gender-based violence.
