Women's rights

Women's rights are the rights and entitlements claimed for women and girls worldwide, and formed the basis for the women's rights movement in the nineteenth century and feminist movement during the 20th century. In some countries, these rights are institutionalized or supported by law, local custom, and behavior, whereas in others they are ignored and suppressed. They differ from broader notions of human rights through claims of an inherent historical and traditional bias against the exercise of rights by women and girls, in favor of men and boys.

First Female Law Firm Opens is Saudi Arabia

"The country’s first female law firm has opened its doors to protect women’s rights in Saudi Arabia, two months after its founder along with three other female lawyers were granted licenses to practice law in the traditionally patriarchal kingdom. Now Saudi women can seek help, advice and legal aid from Bayan Mahmoud Al Zahran, the first Saudi woman lawyer who launched the female law firm in Jeddah. 'I believe women lawyers can contribute a lot to the legal system. This law firm will make a difference in the history of court cases and female disputes in the Kingdom. I am very hopeful and thank everyone who supported me in taking this historical step,' Zahran said."

This is the first person to ever notate music. The first person to ever compose music was Hildegard of Bingen, and she was a woman. A woman is one of the main causes for one of earth's most beautiful passions.

I need feminism because I hate how sports treat women. WNBA works just as hard, if not harder than the NBA, but these women don't get nearly as much support. The fact that they are separate, to me, say that we don't see women as equals. Women should be allowed to do what they want without sexual bias.

I need feminism because I hear people say things like "We're going to rape that team tonight" or "She is such a slut" in their everyday language without a second thought, and it is not okay.

Negativity surrounding healthy sexual behavior is never ok.

Religion often infringes on women's rights. The indoctrination and misinformed themes often dictate youth's opinions for life. Sexually active women retain their human value.
