  1. Introduction
  2. Significant advances made in the protection of women
  3. Insufficient advances made in the protection of women

International Women's Day is on the 8th of March. It is a day for women to remember "nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development?. It is also an opportunity to look at the advances made in the protection of women. Women are all different but the group "women" is characterized by a troubled past of exploitation and subordination. The evolution made in the protection of women is a feature of the second half of the 20th century. To make this protection effective, legal provisions have been taken at the national level as well as the international level. The starting point was the adoption in 1979 of the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) by the United Nation. This convention made it clear that there was a real problem with women and that international institutions were willing to take measures to face the problem.
