B.Culture and Violence Against Women in the International Human Rights Framework
   1.  Universal claims for rights
22.The Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, which the community of States adopted by consensus, confirms: "All human rights are universal, indivisible and interdependent and interrelated. The international community must treat human rights globally in a fair and equal manner, on the same footing, and with the same emphasis. While the significance of national and regional particularities and various historical, cultural and religious backgrounds must be borne in mind, it is the duty of States, regardless of their political, economic and cultural systems, to promote and protect all human rights and fundamental freedoms." This universality extends naturally also to women's human rights, which have been solemnly recognized by States as "an inalienable, integral and indivisible part of universal human rights."
