Summary

A seminal contribution to rethinking and recasting the role of international law has been made by feminist approaches to international law. While the history of women’s movement and its struggle for women’s rights goes back many centuries, the beginnings of feminist engagement with international law can be traced to the International Congress of Women which met in The Hague in 1915 and called for the peaceful settlement of disputes. Women activism came into to its own in international institutions with the League of Nations; its history is however yet to be written.
