While it is generally acknowledged that women suffer discrimination, women who are also members of minority or indigenous communities are particularly marginalized. Like male members of minority and indigenous communities, they lack access to political power and face discrimination in their access to services and rights. However, as women they face these problems and more. The aim of this report is to encourage those working on minority and indigenous peoples’ rights to consider the issues from a gender perspective, and to encourage those working on gender equality and women’s rights to include minorities and indigenous peoples within their remit. This report will be essential reading for anyone interested in issues of gender and the human rights of minorities and indigenous peoples.
