Women's Rights in Ukraine
The independence of Ukraine from the Soviet Union in 1991 meant not only political liberation but the assumption of new obligations concerning human rights. Questions arose in Ukraine regarding Ukraine's existing treaty commitments and the possible ratification of new human rights treaties. By 1995, Ukraine's human rights record received a better-than-passing grade in the U.S. Department of State's Country Report on Human Rights Practices.1 Yet, much remains to be done in the sphere of human rights in Ukraine, particularly concerning the human rights of women.
