What Are Women’s Right? Equalities For All Women?

During many years, it is been discussed women’s right all over the world, even in many cultures in which women have been seen as inferior human beings remarkably. For example, in the Middle East, women have seen in themselves the person they need to success; of course, women in this part of the world have traveled to other open minded countries, such as The United States, to make their dreams come true: having a higher education, the power to decide if they remain in a marriage or they divorce, or even make the decision of how many children they are going to have, etc.

American women have struggled for their rights for centuries, and they have established some parameters to define those rights. Jone Johnson Lewis, Women’s History Expert, writes in the article called: “What Are Women’s Right?” the following text:

“Usually, ‘women’s rights refers to whether women have equality with the rights of men where women and men’s capacities are the same.”

And she continues saying this:

“Sometimes, ‘women’s rights includes protection of women where women are subject to special circumstances (such as maternity leave for child-bearing) or more susceptible to mistreatment (traffic in women, rape).”

It’s true that women’s rights change in every culture, and we know that there are cultures with lower possibilities to increase women’s power, but despite that everyone around the world has understood the importance of women in politics, economy, in all the global issues you can imagine. However, there is no equality yet according to some people, for example, The Guardian reports in 2014 the next text:

There have been huge changes for women in terms of employment in the past decades, with women moving into paid employment outside the home in ways that their grandmothers and even their mothers could only dream of. In the US, for the first time, in 2011, women made up slightly more than half the workforce. There are (some) high-profile women chief executives. There is a small but increasing number of female presidents. Women are moving into jobs that used to be done by men. Even those women working in factories or sweatshops have more choice and independence than if they remained at home.”

In that sense, everyone knows that women are important, but there is a long way to follow through to achieve our goals as leaders, as powerful women, as people who are in total control of what is happening around us. So, no matter what: you girl, you woman, let the world see how amazing you are!
