Within these platforms, best nutritional practices are discussed in conjunction with social norms which foreground beliefs and practices related to health, feeding and nutrition in the first place. Some of these norms being discussed and reconsidered are gender roles in the community and household. Adhering to some of the gender-positive discussions in the groups, men are increasingly building more intimacy with their wives and children, supporting the education of girls, and encouraging access to biomedical

Concentrating his camera on women, children, and the elderly, Hine positioned the groups and individuals in his pictures in such a way as to disarm and to generate positive feelings. Often repeated is the figure of the pieta. For a predominantly Christian America, the apparent intimacy and careful attention suggested by a Madonna and child image signaled virtue and preeminent importance of a mother’s care. Hine’s pictures often conveyed tenderness and protection among adults and children. He also

The book explores the relationship between violence against women on one hand, and the rights to health and reproductive health on the other. It argues that violation of the right to health is a consequence of violence, and that (state) health policies might be a cause of – or create the conditions for – violence against women. It significantly contributes to feminist and international human rights legal scholarship by conceptualising a new ground-breaking idea, violence against women’s health (VAWH), using the Hippocratic paradigm as the backbone of the analysis. The two dimensions of violence at the core of the book – the horizontal, ‘interpersonal’ dimension and the vertical ‘state policies’ dimension – are investigated through around 70 decisions of domestic, regional and international judicial or quasi-judicial bodies (the anamnesis). The concept of VAWH, drawn from the anamnesis, enriches the traditional concept of violence against women with a human rights-based approach to autonomy and a reflection on the pervasiveness of patterns of discrimination (diagnosis). VAWH as theorised in the book allows the reconceptualisation of states’ obligations in an innovative way, by identifying for both dimensions obligations of result, due diligence obligations, and obligations to progressively take steps (treatment). The book eventually asks whether it is not international law itself that is the ultimate cause of VAWH (prognosis).
