The principle of equality and non-discrimination on the grounds of sex is an obligation of general international law, which binds all nations and, given its primordial character, is always establishe.d as a principle that should inspire the rest of fundamental rights

Equality and gender equity 

Gender equality implies that men and women should receive the same benefits, receive the same sentences and be treated with the same respect. This concept is key in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in which the ultimate objective is to give people legal, cultural and social equality, especially in democratic activities and ensure equal pay for the same work

International law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. The adoption of the Charter of the United Nations, signed in San Francisco on June 26, 1945, has placed the principle of equal opportunity and non-discrimination in the orbit of human rights.
