Abstract

This article explores the connections between women's rights and children's rights and suggests ways in which they can complement each other thereby furthering the rights of both groups. The author begins by examining the special case of girls' rights, as girls are vulnerable to exploitation as children and are also subject to the prejudicial practices that violate the rights of women. The author then discusses ways in which women's rights can offer benefits for children and, in turn, how the enforcement of children's rights can support the rights of women. Finally, the author examines the issue of child prostitution in Thailand, as a case study, to demonstrate how a more holistic approach to women's rights and children's rights can benefit all individuals.

Keywords: International law, human rights, women's rights, children's rights
