The development of human rights regimes around the world is based on a belief that there are such things as universal values. This idea is challenged most potently in the areas of gender and sexuality, where patriarchal power relations often combine with religion to oppose women’s equality. This lecture will engage with the claims of cultural relativism and steer a course through the struggle for human rights in societies which are multi-ethnic and multi-religious.

This talk is part of the Humanitas series.
