Feminism is the basis behind women’s rights. a large number of social, cultural and political issues are involved such as cultural, political and economic issues. Feminists often disagree over the sources of inequality, how to obtain equality, and to what extent to gender related issues should be thought about.
Millions of women throughout the world live in conditions of deprivation of, and attacks against, their fundamental human rights for no other reason than that they are women.
In locations such as Sierra Leone, Kosovo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, and Rwanda, women have been raped as a weapon of war with near complete impunity. Men in Pakistan, South Africa, Peru, Russia, and Uzbekistan beat women in the home at shocking rates. The governments alternatively refuse to get involved to protect these women and punish their batterers or they do so with little effort and in ways that make women feel very unsafe.
As a direct consequence of inequality established in their countries of origin, women from Ukraine, Moldova, Nigeria, the Dominican Republic, Burma, and Thailand are bought and sold, they are trafficked to work in forced prostitution, with insufficient government attention to protect their rights and penalize the traffickers.
In Guatemala, South Africa, and Mexico, women's capability to go into and stay in the work force is blocked by private employers who use women's reproductive status to prohibit them from work and by discriminatory employment laws or discriminatory enforcement of the law.
In the United States, students categorize certain females and have been known to show rage against and attack girls in school who are lesbian or bi-sexual, or do not conform to male standards of what female behavior should be. Women in Morocco, Jordan, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia face government-sponsored discrimination that makes them unequal before the law, including discriminatory family rules that take away women's legal ability and place it in the hands of male family members. They confine women's involvement in public life.
In some countries, abuses against women are persistent, methodical, and sadly are widely accepted. Violence and discrimination against women are worldwide social epidemics. We live in a world in which women do not have basic control over what happens to their bodies. Millions of women and girls are forced to marry and have sex with men they do not wish for. Women are unable to depend on the government to protect them from physical violence in the home, with sometimes fatal consequences, including increased risk of the HIV infection.
Women in state custody face sexual assault by their jailers. Women are punished for having sex outside of marriage or with a person of their choosing. Many countries force a woman to marry a man that her family picks out. Husbands and other male family members hinder or control women's access to reproductive health care.
Until people unite to end the way things are for a lot of women, there will be women who are suffering each day. Each and every woman should have access to each women's right that exist; to not have this is to not be able to fully live.
