Women’s rights are human rights. Legal and ethical rights should not be limited due to sex or gender, and women the world over fight for the right to live free from violence and discrimination, to have access to education, to own property, to work and earn an equal wage to men, to vote, to have access to health care, and to have control over our bodies and independent movement from place to place. Women and girls face gender-discriminatory treatment, policies, and cultural norms that routinely deny them of some or many of these rights. Increasing and protecting women’s rights has been shown to make the world a better place in economic, social, sustainability, and development arenas.
