Why Do We Need Women’s Rights?

Women's Rights

Despite popular belief, Women’s Rights aren’t just about gaining the right to vote or to attend college. They’re about making sure that women have equal access to opportunities and resources across all facets of society, from politics to business to sport. Women’s rights are crucial to every society in which they are denied, so how do we encourage more and more countries to recognize them? And why should we care?

Women’s Rights :-

Feminism in general

Women’s Rights

Feminism is all about equality, which can mean different things to different people. As a society, we need to foster an environment in which both men and women feel comfortable sharing parenting duties, achieving success on their own terms, striving for personal and professional goals, making their own decisions—and living freely. That doesn’t mean that men and women should be exactly equal or even do exactly the same things.

The #MeToo Movement

Women’s Rights

The movement started when Alyssa Milano sent out a tweet, asking victims of sexual harassment to tweet with #MeToo if they had experienced such an incident. The hashtag spread virally on Twitter and people who had been sexually harassed began to share their experiences for all to see. This led to more celebrities coming forward about their experiences with sexual abuse. It seems like a positive movement, but there are some critics who believe that it creates more opportunities for men to target women in a negative way.

Equal pay

Women’s Rights

The average woman in a full-time job earns only 79 cents for every dollar earned by a man, according to a 2017 report from the National Partnership for Women & Families. Additionally, black women earn 69 cents and Latina women earn 56 cents for every dollar earned by white men. In other words, when you take into account race and gender, black women in particular face an even greater wage gap—and that’s not okay.

Equal rights and opportunities

Women’s Rights

In countries where women are considered equal to men, they have access to education and healthcare and make up more than 50% of university graduates. They have better employment opportunities than women in other countries, and also receive equal pay for their work. They have equal rights over their bodies – they decide when they want to get married, whether or not to have children, when (and if) they want a divorce, where to live.

Housework, care work, and paid work

Women’s Rights

Why do men and women split up chores so differently around the world? First, culture dictates how women should behave. In some countries, working outside of a home is considered improper for women. Other cultures may not demand as much labor from women as they did in earlier times. Some argue that culturally-enforced gender norms limit women’s participation in society.

Education and health care

Women’s Rights

In countries where women have been denied access to education and health care, they are more likely to die in childbirth or as a result of giving birth. In these countries, women also often don’t receive information about family planning and safe abortions, which leads to an increase in maternal mortality rates. Countries like India and Nigeria are two examples of places that suffer from high maternal mortality rates; but with increased education and health care for women—including better family planning options—these numbers will improve dramatically.

Violence against women

Women’s Rights

One of the most common ways that women are oppressed is through violence. Female victims of sexual assault and domestic violence can be ostracized by their families, which allows for further victimization by depriving them of financial and social support. Gender-based violence is a serious issue that requires resources and attention to resolve on an individual level and at a community level. International laws have been enacted to recognize gender-based violence as one of many forms of human rights violations, including torture and enslavement.
