Women’s Rights Are Human Rights
Sexual abuse, human-trafficking, domestic violence, forced marriage and genital mutilation are human rights violations that affect women.
Amnesty International also has some specific rights defined for the equality of women:
These include the right to live free from violence and discrimination; to enjoy the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health; to be educated; to own property; to vote; and to earn an equal wage.
But are we there yet?
