Summary
In 'Feminicides of Girl Children in the Family Context: An International Human Rights Law Approach', Clara Chapdelaine-Feliciati examines the issue of feminicide, more specifically female infanticide, and the extent to which it is addressed under international law. For this purpose, she explores the origins of son preference and 'daughter devaluation', and the myriad factors that underpin female infanticide. Legal semiotics is employed to analyse legislation and case law, and assess whether the provisions of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR 1966) sufficiently protect girl children. Amendments to the ICCPR are proposed to clarify States parties' duty of due diligence and ensure that the crime of female infanticide is effectively prohibited, investigated, and prosecuted
