Summary

In this report, submitted to the Human Rights Council pursuant to Council resolutions 17/4 and 35/7, the Working Group on business and human rights highlights the differentiated and disproportionate impact of business activities on women and girls. It develops a gender framework for the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. The report also proposes gender guidance specific to each of the 31 guiding principles. Both States and business enterprises should consider the gender framework and guidance set out in the present report and the annex thereto in implementing the Guiding Principles.
