This chapter, authored by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on violence against women, traces the evolution of the treatment of violence against women as a human rights issue, explaining the State responsibility to act with due diligence to promote and protect human rights and describing the international instruments that apply that responsibility to the area of women’s rights. The chapter then outlines the Special Rapporteur’s findings on how State responsibility to act with due diligence was understood, interpreted, and implemented throughout the world. The chapter concludes that although there has been progress worldwide in the governmental response to violence against women, it is difficult to determine whether the laws and policies that have been adopted by States have been effective.
