On 14 July 2017, the UN Committee on the elimination of discrimination against women (CEDAW Committee) adopted the General Recommendation No. 35 on gender-based violence against women, which updates and complements General Recommendation No. 19 adopted in 1992 by the same body. The article is meant to analyse the innovative aspects of General Recommendation No. 35 and to reflect on the affirmation that the prohibition of violence against women has consolidated into a customary international rule. I will argue that the prohibition of some but not all forms of VAW have consolidated as customary international law, and I will support the main argument by considering VAW as a broad notion which encompasses all crimes committed against women because they are women or that affect women disproportionately.
