Abstract:

Feminists argue that the public/private distinction (where women are associated with the private sphere of the home and family and men are associated the public sphere of economy and politics) perpetuates the Ďsilenceí of international law on womenís rights. Unlike most previous research in this area, this study uses qualitative methods (Ordinary Least Squares multivariate regressions on cross-sectional data) to test the hypothesis that where there is a greater presence of women in the public sphere of a given state, that state will have a higher level of participation in international law that protects womenís rights. The results indicate that the hypothesis can only be partially verified, and that a differentiation may need to be made between various facets of the Ďpublic sphere.í
