Under certain conditions, enlightened interpretation of the UN definition of a Convention refugee can also protect women who are persecuted simply because they are women by including them under one of five enumerated grounds of "membership in a particular social group" facing oppression by the state or its agents.2 In fact, the Supreme Court of Canada has defined a particular social group (among other criteria) to embrace those persons who share a fundamental, immutable characteristic from which disassociation is impossible.3 The Supreme Court of Canada has specifically identified gender and sexual orientation as grounds to claim international protection, both of which are analogous to the unalterable characteristics of race and nationality (ethnic origin). Application of the ejusdem generis principle in Canada challenges other states to follow, given that precious few states acknowledge an obligation to protect women because they are women. This chapter explores how the protection of refugee women because they are women came about in Canada; it invites anthropologists to participate in the effort to protect women from gender-based persecution.
