Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW)

I.1 Sexual Violence under the CEDAW

Under article 1, 'discrimination against women' means any distinction, exclusion or restriction made on the basis of sex which has the effect or purpose of denying women, irrespective of their marital status, on a basis of equality of men and women, their human rights and fundamental freedoms 'in the political, economic, social, cultural, civil or any other field'. Discrimination against women includes gender-based violence.

While gender-based violence typically describes violence committed against any persons because of their sex and socially constructed gender roles, under the CEDAW the term takes on a more woman-centric focus: the Committee has defined it as 'violence which is directed against a woman because she is a woman or that affects women disproportionately'. Its prohibition has evolved into a principle of customary international law.
