Litigating the Maputo Protocol: A Compendium of Strategies and Approaches for Defending the Rights of Women and Girls in Africa exemplifies the effectiveness of litigation in national, regional, and continental courts as a strategy to ensure that the rights enshrined in the Maputo Protocol translate to actual benefit for women and girls in Africa.

The topics and themes covered in this publication lay bare the disparities in approaches and standpoints taken by governments when it comes to implementing the Maputo Protocol, as well as the ingenuity and innovation of civil society and legal actors keen to ensure that the Maputo Protocol is adhered to by states who ratify it.
