Gender Justice Perspective on ECHR Case-Law

I would like to bring the Gender Justice Observatory to your attention. This website is, in its own words an "interactive database of important decisions from national, regional and international courts and tribunals and of strategies to work with courts and tribunals on issues related to sexual and reproductive rights, gender discrimination and gender violence." It contains a big collection of summaries and analyses of gender-related case-law from global and regional human rights institutions, including the European Court of Human Rights. This includes landmark cases for gender issues such as Opuz and Munoz Diaz, but is not entirely complete yet. Hopefully more is to follow. One can search the collection by theme, treaty, country or institution. An extra feature is that parts of the site are bilingual, making the information available both in English and Spanish.
