The World Of Women In Persuit Of Human Rights
From time to time, it behooves us to examine human rights in the special context of womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rights. Since the primary responsibility of any society is to bear and raise future generations of male and female human beings, womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s roles in reproduction must be held in the highest esteem and must not be permitted to become the basis for discrimination against women as women. Further, the responsibility for raising and nurturing future generations must fall upon men and women equally. Women, like men, have the right to freely participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific, economic, and cultural advancement and their benefits. Women have the same right to bodily autonomy as men, especially as regards their reproductive organs. Surgical alteration of a womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sexual organs for any reason other than her health is a violation of her human rights.
