The lack of women judges working in international courts and tribunals is unjust.

That's according to Viviana Krsticevic, Executive Director of the non-profit Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL), who attended a recent event at the UN in New York.

CEJIL is supporting the GQUAL or Gender Equal campaign, which tackles the under-representation of women in the justice system.

Siobhán Garside asked Ms Krsticevic why gender parity in international bodies is important.
