Through careful research and in-depth investigation, the guide explores in practice the rights ratified for women by the protocol, such as reproductive rights, the prohibition of female genital mutilation, and economic and social welfare rights. The rights of particularly vulnerable groups of women, including widows, elderly women, disabled women and “women in distress”—which includes poor women, women from marginalized population groups, and pregnant or nursing women in detention—are specifically recognized.
