Gender justice is a multifaceted concept, mostly related to the view on men and women as valued equally and the statement that men and women should be treated equally. Much of the rhetoric, policy, legislation, practical action, and theoretical perspective on gender justice is anchored in a human rights framework. Theoretical presumptions on both gender and justice impact the understanding of what gender justice is or should be, and how gender justice can or should be reached. Scholars within gender studies have analyzed and questioned these presumptions, as well as the political and legal manifestations of gender justice, and reflected on the many ways of understanding gender justice. The different ways of understanding gender justice can be structured around two main aspects, gender justice as a question of identity and recognition, and gender justice as a question of rights and responsibilities and of distribution of these between men and women.
