CFP: Elimination of Discrimination Based on Gender

Conference: TIIKM's 1st Annual World Conference on Women's Studies
Place: Colombo, Sri Lanka
Date: March 24-25, 2015
Submission deadline for abstracts: January 30, 2015
Description:
»In some countries women, unlike men, cannot dress as they like, drive, work at night, inherit property or give evidence in Court. The vast majority of expressly discriminatory laws in force relate to family life, including limiting a woman’s right to marry (or the right not to marry in cases of early forced marriages), divorce and remarry, thus allowing for sex discriminatory marital practices such as wife obedience and polygamy. Laws explicitly mandating “wife obedience” still govern marital relations in many States.
TIIKM’s 1st annual world conference on women studies attempts to form a discussion to address these discriminations against women.«
