Women’s Rights: a Huge Movement
Gender equality, also known as sexual equality, is when your gender does not determine your access to opportunities and resources. There should also be equal valuing of aspirations, behaviors and decision-making, independent of gender. One issue in gender inequality is equal pay, there should be equal work equal pay. If a woman is putting in the same work as a man, she should get the same check. The law says there is equal pay but according to statistics the U.S still isn’t making it happen. According to the US Census Bureau, today, on average, a woman makes 80.5 cents for every dollar that a man makes. In fact, the gender pay gap varies between states, where southern states are likely to have a higher pay gap. In southern states like Louisiana, women earn only about 70% of what men earn.
Another topic regarding women’s rights is abortion, where men in office think they can choose whether or not a women’s rights to one, but why, if it’s the woman’s body? There are several factors that come into play when making the ultimate decision of an abortion, like finances, rape, and living situations. If a woman is raped, I feel that abortions should definitely be possible, no one wants to have to relive that moment every time they face their child. I feel that if a woman just carelessly got pregnant, then abortion should not be an option. In the end, tt should totally be up to women though.
Domestic violence is a huge topic. Violence alone, is a violation of basic human rights. However, violence directed against women by their intimate partners is an epidemic of worldwide that has devastating physical, emotional, financial and social effects on women, children, the family and even the community. This The consequences of domestic violence, both physical and psychological, are so devastating that some consider it a form of torture.
Child marriage is any formal marriage or informal union where one or both of the parties are under the age of 18, each year 12 million girls are married before 18. That is 23 girls every minute. child marriage needs to be stopped, it also leads to abuse/violence. Children lack the choice or capacity to give their full consent.
In conclusion Women’s rights is a huge movement. Men should not be able to make choices envolving woman and how they carry themselves or live their lives. It is one of the problems in society today.
