Pandora's Box 2001 - International Human Rights

This year Pandora’s Box extended its horizons to a transnational focus: international human rights. This edition drew together contributors from women in diverse sectors of society, including the judiciary, the diplomatic corps, the police service, academia, non-governmental organisations and politics. The journal provided a forum for women’s reflections on a range of local and national issues: women and policing in our community, legal aid, justice for women in Australia and international human rights obligations.
