AMERICAN SOCIETY OF INTERNATIONAL LAW Hilary Charlesworth and Christine Chinkin were jointly selected to receive the American Society of International Law’s 2006 Goler T. Butcher Medal for their work co-authoring The Boundaries of International Law: A Feminist Analysis. The medal, awarded annually since 1997 in honor of professor Goler Teal Butcher, recognizes outstanding contributions to the development or effective realization of international human rights law. The book takes a critical look at how and why the development of international law has often failed to address the needs of women. It cites root causes such as the lack of women in positions of power at the state and international levels and advocates that the boundaries of international law be redrawn to correct those failures and to create more equitable status and treatment of women in society.
