Overview

In all Asian countries, political repression and lack of economic productivity are affecting women to a far greater degree than men. This article shows why this is so, looking at how women’s rights are violated in different contexts: urban, rural, export processing zones, tourist areas, and by civil war. The author asserts that advocates of Asian women’s human rights should aim to replace patriarchy, gender-based violence, and rich-nation dominance with women’s development and empowerment and a fair global economic order. This must be achieved by women as well as men and through the Asian Women’s Human Rights Council.
