    Although most African states are signatories of well-known documents on gender equality such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the Beijing Platform for Action and the African Union Solemn Declaration on Gender Equality, the real impact of these international instruments on women’s lives has been limited and variable.
