Practice Relating to Rule 134. Women
Mexico’s Army and Air Force Manual (2009), in a section on the 1949 Geneva Conventions, states: “Women must be treated with all the regard due to their sex.”
In the same section, the manual also states: “Women … who become prisoners of war must be treated with special respect and protected against any form of indecent assault.
In a section on the 1949 Geneva Convention III, the manual further states: “Women must be treated with all the regard due to their sex and benefit by treatment as least as favourable as that granted to men.”
