Gender perspective in Private International Law can be claimed through the so-called “sorority”: solidarity between women against sexual discrimination. Private International Law can become an ethical tool to fight for solidarity and against such phenomena as misogyny and sexism, among others. Several topics (such as the application of Islamic law by some national authorities, child abduction in cases of gender violence or transnational surrogacy) show how our discipline can be an instrument to promote equal rights for women and how sorority can reinforce this equality. So, there is a reciprocal influence between all of them.
