Gender Equality Protocol

genderprotocol2Gender equality is about women’s rights but it is not only about women’s rights. It treats with the right of every member of society to an equal share of the available resources and benefits of that society. It is about the dignity of the human person and the affirmations made on our behalf contained in the preamble to the 1976 Republican Constitution of Trinidad and Tobago. In particular, it is about the equal and inalienable rights of all persons.

The idea of the establishment of this protocol was born at a Caribbean Association of Judicial Officers (“CAJO”) Biennial conference held in Jamaica in 2015. It arose out of a presentation made on Gender Equality by UN Women and the Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthening (JURIST) Project, which is funded by Global Affairs Canada. At that conference, the Chief Justices of the Region committed to have prepared a Gender Protocol for Judicial Officers in each Judiciary in the region. To further this commitment a generic draft protocol was prepared for each Caribbean region by UN Women, the JURIST Project, and CAJO. Each draft protocol was modeled on the Mexican Supreme Court’s ‘Judicial Decision-Making with a Gender Perspective: A Protocol’ developed in 2014.
