Women’s rights are human rights.

We are all entitled to human rights. These include the right to live free from violence and discrimination; to enjoy the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health; to be educated; to own property; to vote; and to earn an equal wage.

But across the globe many women and girls still face discrimination on the basis of sex and gender. Gender inequality underpins many problems which disproportionately affect women and girls, such as domestic and sexual violence, lower pay, lack of access to education, and inadequate healthcare.

For many years women’s rights movements have fought hard to address this inequality, campaigning to change laws or taking to the streets to demand their rights are respected. And new movements have flourished in the digital age, such as the #MeToo campaign which highlights the prevalence of gender-based violence and sexual harassment.

Through research, advocacy and campaigning, Amnesty International pressures the people in power to respect women’s rights. 

On this page we look at the history of women’s rights, what women’s rights actually are, and what Amnesty is doing.


How are women’s rights being violated, women’s rights and international law, why is it important to stand up for women’s rights.

three activists are at the forefront of an image of a large protest in Karachi. They appear to be celebrating with their arms waving joyously.

What do we mean when we talk about women’s rights? What are we fighting for? Here are just some examples of the rights which activists throughout the centuries and today have been fighting for:

Women’s Suffrage

During the 19th and early 20 th  centuries people began to agitate for the  right of women to vote . In 1893 New Zealand became the first country to give women the right to vote on a national level. This movement grew to spread all around the world, and thanks to the efforts of everyone involved in this struggle, today women’s suffrage is a right under the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (1979).

However, despite these developments there are still many places around the world where it is very difficult for women to exercise this right.  Take  Syria  for example, where women have been effectively cut off from political engagement, including the ongoing peace process.

In Pakistan, although voting is a constitutional right, in some areas women have been effectively  prohibited from voting  due to powerful figures in their communities using patriarchal local customs to bar them from going to the polls.

And in Afghanistan, authorities recently decided to introduce  mandatory photo screening  at polling stations, making voting problematic for women in conservative areas, where most women cover their faces in public.

Amnesty International campaigns for all women to be able to effectively participate in the political process.

Sexual and Reproductive Rights

Everyone should be able to make decisions about their own body.

Every woman and girl has sexual and reproductive rights . This means they are entitled to equal access to health services like contraception and safe abortions, to choose if, when, and who they marry, and to decide if they want to have children and if so how many, when and with who.

Women should be able to live without fear of gender-based violence, including rape and other sexual violence, female genital mutilation (FGM), forced marriage, forced pregnancy, forced abortion, or forced sterilization.

But there’s a long way to go until all women can enjoy these rights.

For example, many women and girls around the world are still unable to access safe and legal abortions. In several countries, people who want or need to end pregnancies are often forced to make an impossible choice: put their lives at risk or go to jail.

In  Argentina , Amnesty International has campaigned alongside grassroots human rights defenders to change the country’s strict abortion laws. There have been some major steps forward, but women and girls are still being harmed by laws which mean they cannot make choices about their own bodies.

We have also campaigned successfully in  Ireland and Northern Ireland , where abortion was recently decriminalized after many decades of lobbying by Amnesty and other rights groups.

In  Poland  along with more than 200 human and women’s rights organisations from across the globe, Amnesty has co-signed a joint statement protesting the ‘Stop Abortion’ bill.

South Korea  has recently seen major advances in sexual and reproductive rights after many years of campaigning by Amnesty and other groups, culminating in a ruling by South Korea’s Constitutional Court that orders the government to decriminalize abortion in the country and reform the country’s highly restrictive abortion laws by the end of 2020.

In Burkina Faso, Amnesty International has supported women and girls in their fight against  forced marriage , which affects a huge number of girls especially in rural areas.

And in Sierra Leone, Amnesty International has been working with local communities as part of our Human Rights Education Programme, which focuses on a number of human rights issues, including  female genital mutilation .

In Zimbabwe, we found that women and girls were left vulnerable to unwanted pregnancies and a higher risk of HIV infection because of widespread confusion around sexual consent and access to sexual health services. This meant that girls would face discrimination, the risk of child marriage, economic hardship and barriers to education.

In  Jordan  Amnesty International has urged authorities to stop colluding with an abusive male “guardianship” system which controls women’s lives and limits their personal freedoms, including detaining women accused of leaving home without permission or having sex outside marriage and subjecting them to humiliating “virginity tests”.

Freedom of Movement

Freedom of movement is the right to move around freely as we please – not just within the country we live in, but also to visit others. But many women face real challenges when it comes to this. They may not be allowed to have their own passports, or they might have to seek permission from a male guardian in order to travel.

For example, recently in Saudi Arabia there has been a successful campaign to allow women to drive, which had previously been banned for many decades. But despite this landmark gain, the authorities continue to  persecute and detain  many women’s rights activists, simply for peacefully advocating for their rights.


When looking at women’s rights it’s helpful to have an understanding of feminism. At its core,  feminism  is the belief that women are entitled to political, economic, and social equality. Feminism is committed to ensuring women can fully enjoy their rights on an equal footing with men.

Intersectional Feminism

Intersectional feminism  is the idea that all of the reasons someone might be discriminated against, including race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic class, and disability, among others, overlap and intersect with each other. One way of understanding this would be to look at how this might apply in a real world setting, such as  Dominica , where our research has shown that women sex workers, who are often people of colour, or transgender, or both, suffer torture and persecution by the police.

Gender Inequality

Gender inequality could include:

Gender-Based Violence

Gender-based violence  is when violent acts are committed against women and LGBTI people on the basis of their orientation, gender identity, or sex characteristics. Gender based violence happens to women and girls in disproportionate numbers.

Women and girls in conflict are especially at risk from violence, and throughout history sexual violence has been used as a weapon of war. For example, we have documented how many women who fled attacks from Boko Haram in Nigeria have been  subjected  to sexual violence and rape by the Nigerian military .

Globally, on average  30% of all women  who have been in a relationship have experienced physical and/or sexual violence committed against them by their partner. Women are more likely to be victims of sexual assault including rape, and are more likely to be the victims of so-called  “honour crimes”.

Violence against women is a major human rights violation. It is the responsibility of a state to protect women from gender-based violence –  even domestic abuse behind closed doors.

Sexual Violence and Harassment

Sexual harassment means any unwelcome sexual behaviour. This could be physical conduct and advances, demanding or requesting sexual favours or using inappropriate sexual language.

Sexual violence is when someone is physically sexually assaulted. Although men and boys can also be victims of sexual violence, it is women and girls who are  overwhelmingly affected.

Workplace Discrimination

Often, women are the subject of gender based discrimination in the workplace. One way of illustrating this is to look at the  gender pay gap . Equal pay for the same work is a human right, but time and again women are denied access to a fair and equal wage. Recent figures show that women currently earn roughly 77% of what men earn for the same work. This leads to a lifetime of financial disparity for women, prevents them from fully exercising independence, and means an increased risk of poverty in later life.

Discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity  

In many countries around the world, women are denied their rights on the basis of  sexual orientation, gender identity, or sex characteristics . Lesbian, bisexual, trans and intersex women and gender non-confirming people face violence, exclusion, harassment, and discrimination Many are also subjected to extreme  violence , including sexual violence or so called “corrective rape” and “honour killings.” 

The  Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) (1979)  is a key international treaty addressing gender-based discrimination and providing specific protections for women’s rights.

The  convention  sets out an international bill of rights for women and girls, and defines what obligations states have make sure women can enjoy those rights.

Over 180 states have ratified the convention.

Women’s Rights are Human Rights

It might seem like an obvious point, but we cannot have a free and equal society until everyone is free and equal. Until women enjoy the same rights as men, this inequality is everyone’s problem.

Protecting women’s rights makes the world a better place

According to the UN, “gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls is not just a goal in itself, but a key to sustainable development, economic growth, and peace and security”. Research has shown this to be the case – society gets better for everyone when women’s rights are upheld and taken seriously.

We’re stronger when we work together

Although grassroots movements have done so much to effect change, when everyone comes together to support women’s rights we can be so much stronger. By working alongside individual activists and campaigners on the ground as well as running our own targeted campaigns, movements such as Amnesty International can form a formidable vanguard in the fight for women’s rights.

Early Ideas about Women

Through much of history, women have not been treated as equals with men. Women were thought to be naturally weaker and less smart than men. Some myths and religions even presented women as a source of evil.

For all these reasons, women were not given the same rights as men. But when women were given some freedom, they made important achievements. For example, some women became powerful leaders. Queen Elizabeth I ruled England for 45 years in the 1500s. Catherine the Great was empress of Russia in the 1700s.

In the late 1700s many people in Europe and North America began to speak of individual freedom. They said that people had rights that governments must respect. But they left out women by using phrases such as “the rights of man.” During this time some free-thinking women spoke up for the women’s rights. One of them was the English feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. She said that women should receive the same opportunities as men in education, work, and politics.

The Right to Vote

Before the 1900s most women throughout the world were not allowed to vote in their country's…

The United States

In the United States the women’s rights movement grew out of the abolitionist, or antislavery, movement. Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were abolitionists who also led the first women’s rights convention. The convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848.

Stanton and Susan B. Anthony formed the National Woman Suffrage Association in 1869. Lucy Stone formed the American Woman Suffrage Association in the same year. The two groups united in 1890.

The struggle to win the vote was slow. Starting in 1869 some territories and states gave women the vote. But efforts to create a federal law failed again and again. Victory finally came in 1920, when the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed. It gave women the right to vote nationwide.

Around the World

Women in other countries also worked for voting rights. Women gained the vote in New Zealand in 1893, in Australia in 1902, in Finland in 1906, and in Norway in 1913.

In the United Kingdom, Emmeline Pankhurst got women to march in the streets for voting rights. In 1918 British women over age 30 won the vote. In 1928 the age was lowered to 21.

Other countries changed more slowly. Women in Switzerland could not vote until 1971. Even in the early 2000s, women in some Middle Eastern countries still did not have the right to vote.

The Modern Women’s Movement

A new women’s rights movement began in the 1960s. This movement was commonly called “feminism” or “women’s liberation.” Feminists in the United States formed the National Organization for Women (NOW) in 1966.

NOW worked to make the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) a part of the U.S. Constitution. The amendment would have guaranteed all legal rights, not just voting rights, to women. It died in 1982 because not enough states ratified, or approved, it.

But the women’s rights movement still made gains. For example, it helped make birth control available to more women. Birth control gives women greater control over when they have children. Birth control allowed more women to have careers.

Women who chose careers at first faced much unfairness in the workplace. Congress passed laws to help them. The Equal Pay Act of 1963 said that men and women had to get the same pay for doing the same job. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 included equal rights for women as well as for racial minorities. The act made it illegal to set aside some jobs for men and others for women.

Education also became more available to women. By the end of the 1900s, women were earning more than half of all college degrees in the United States.

Human Rights Careers

5 Women’s Rights Essays You Can Read For Free

Women and girls are the most disenfranchised group in the world. Even in places where huge strides have been made, gaps in equality remain. Women’s rights are important within the realm of human rights. Here are five essays exploring the scope of women’s rights, which you can download or read for free online:

“A Vindication on the Rights of Woman” – Mary Wollstonecraft

Mother of Mary Shelley, who wrote the novel Frankenstein, Mary Wollstonecraft is a juggernaut of history in her own right, though for a different reason. Self-educated, Wollstonecraft dedicated her life to women’s education and feminism. Her 1792 essay A Vindication on the Rights of Woman represents one of the earliest writings on women’s equality. In the Western world, many consider its arguments the foundation of the modern women’s rights movement. In the essay, Wollstonecraft writes that men are not  more reasonable or rational than women, and that women must be educated with the same care, so they can contribute to society. If women were left out of the intellectual arena, the progress of society would stop. While most of us believe the idea that women are inherently inferior to men is very outdated, it’s still an accepted viewpoint in many places and in many minds. Wollstonecraft’s Vindication is still relevant.

“The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House” – Audre Lorde

Poet and activist Audre Lorde defied the boundaries of traditional feminism and cried out against its racist tendencies. While today debates about intersectional feminism (feminism that takes into account race, sexuality, etc) are common, Audre Lorde wrote her essay on women’s rights and racism back in 1984. In “The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House,” Lorde explains how ignoring differences between women – whether its race, class, or sexuality – halts any real change. By pretending the suffering of women is “all the same,” and not defined by differences, white women actually contribute to oppression. Lorde’s essay drew anger from the white feminist community. It’s a debate that feels very current and familiar.

“How to convince sceptics of the value of feminism” – Laura Bates

Laura Bates founded the Everyday Sexism Project website back in 2012. It documents examples of everyday sexism of every degree and has become very influential. In her essay from 2018, Bates takes reader comments into consideration over the essay’s three parts. This unique format allows the essay to encompass multiple views, just not Bates’, and takes into consideration a variety of experiences people have with skeptics of feminism. Why even debate skeptics? Doesn’t that fuel the trolls? In some cases, yes, but skeptics of feminism aren’t trolls, they are numerous, and make up every part of society, including leadership. Learning how to talk to people who don’t agree with you is incredibly important.

“Why Can’t A Smart Woman Love Fashion?” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is one of the most influential voices in women’s rights writing. Her book, We Should All Be Feminists , is a great exploration of 21st-century feminism. In this essay from Elle, Adichie takes a seemingly “small” topic about fashion and makes a big statement about independence and a woman’s right to wear whatever she wants. There is still a lot of debate about what a feminist should look like, if wearing makeup contributes to oppression, and so on. “Why Can’t A Smart Woman Love Fashion?” is a moving, personal look at these sorts of questions.

“The male cultural elite is staggeringly blind to #MeToo. Now it’s paying for it.” – Moira Donegan

There are countless essays on the Me Too Movement, and most of them are great reads. In this one from The Guardian, Moira Donegan highlights two specific men and the publications that chose to give them a platform after accusations of sexual misconduct. It reveals just how pervasive the problem is in every arena, including among the cultural, intellectual elite, and what detractors of Me Too are saying.

How to Write a Marvelous Women’s Rights Essay

Take the Survey

Writing a women’s rights essay may sound too feminist. But don’t think this way! Essays and books that touch women’s rights issues have had great influence on society. Speeches, social activities, and publications are only a small part of the continuous struggle of women for their rights and freedoms. All these have turned women from mere housewives into persons with rights and freedoms. Women all over the world began to fight not only for the right to vote and work, but also for the voice in their own families.

Feminism is a recognition that people are treated differently depending on their biological sex and prevailing dominance of gender norms. Women face inequalities at schools, colleges, and work. Many of them have limited access to recourse and politics. Domestic and intimate partner violence and sexual assaults are conducted all over the world on regular basis. And feminism is a woman’s decision to fight these inequalities to create a more equitable society.

To be a feminist means to recognize a woman as an independent, full-fledged person. Both men and women can share feminist ideas. But if we consider feminism as women’s movement for rights and freedoms, then a man can be considered as their ally and a like-minded person.

What is a women’s rights essay

A women’s rights essay is an essay written on topics related to feminism and women’s rights movements. Writing a women’s rights essay may involve the research of historical aspects of women’s rights movements, investigating and analyzing the most urgent problems connected with limitation of women’s rights and freedoms, and highlighting solutions to the problems. To write a good women’s rights essay you need to use your skills to persuade, analyze, and think critically.

Usually, women’s rights essays are written in an analytical, descriptive, or persuasive style.

In this article our essay writers want to share with you some approaches and ideas that may be helpful when writing a women’s rights essay.

Thesis ideas for a women’s rights essay

This type of essay can touch all spheres that are connected with women’s rights. You can discuss the role of women in a particular epoch, analyze women’s rights movements and organizations, explore the issues on women’s equality, and much more.

Usually essays are connected with the most urgent women’s rights issues. Below you can see the list of issues accompanied by thesis statements.

Thesis: Child marriage should be banned, as it puts young girls at risk of early pregnancies with life-threatening conditions. Countries should use progressive programs to reduce child marriage.

Thesis: Women are paid less than men, so the government should have great attention to controlling payment systems according to gender.

Here is an example of an introduction paragraph for women’s rights essay.

Title: Intimate Partner Violence

One of the most common forms of violence against women is intimate partner violence. For more than a century ago, it was considered more of a normal thing to beat a woman. In many countries it’s still common. The problem of domestic violence has long been a taboo issue, and still it faces resistance from society on addressing this problem.

There are many myths about the problem of intimate partner violence, such as that violence occurs only in socially disadvantaged families, that there is a certain appearance and social position of women subjected to violence, etc. Violence exists in all social groups regardless of the level of income, education, position in society, class, race, culture, religion, and socioeconomic aspects.

Are We Still Fighting for Women’s Rights Today? Why or Why Not?

Apparently, the modern world finds itself amid the exaltation of another feminist movement wave. In fact, feminism as a global movement, and not only for women’s rights but for the equality of human rights, has been at the top of the list of every contemporary dispute all over the range of social groups. Feminism as a movement emerged at the dawn of the previous century and has had its growth and decline. In the last five years, it has become a trend to discuss the rights of women in terms of the equality of rights in general. However, the movement does not occur to limit itself within verbal disputes only, as it has spread in many other areas of actions, such as legal norms, mass media presentations, and many others. Accordingly, we are still fighting for women’s rights today.

Many apparent and less apparent reasons influence the fact that the struggle for the rights of women continues. Feminists all over the globe are implementing their discussions and actions in terms of various facets of the question of human rights (Shachar, 2006). The primary basis that grounds the discussion constitutes the argument of human rights that serves as a critical justification for the existence of the feminist movement (Bunch, 1990, p. 486). This way, an ordinary feminist would always claim that human rights and equality are a critical prerogative that encompasses the overall ideology of the feminist movement. As is underlined by Bunch, women being equal with men, which is the main slogan that represents the idea, includes the right of women within the given perspective. Accordingly, one might as well happen to claim that in spite of many victories on the side of the feminist movement, there is still an evident manifestation of the fact that the struggle continues, and women still fight for their rights.

It has already been mentioned that the fight for women’s rights continues within many facets of its perspective, as it encompasses the terms of legal implementation of norms, ideological persuasion through media, and simple alternation of the ethical norms conductions. Such a thing as the use of feminine words is one of the key examples that claim to interpret the struggle and its spread within the ideological perspective. Through the meager details that spread to the ethical norms of the professional environment, the alterations of which lead to the positive change from the initiative of the feminist movement, the ideology, and general perception spread itself (Shachar, 2006). For instance, as the manager shakes hands with male representatives of the work community and ignores merely the female part of the audience, people who appear to step up against the male-biased norm of the professional ethics ritual represent the evidence of the topicality of the feminist movement. One might also appear to claim that meager details that could as well seem to be irrelevant present the most critical element that allows asserting the fact that the fight for women’s rights continues.

It also occurs to be essential to realize that formality is never enough for the feminist movement to be active. This way, for the fight for equality, for human rights and for the rights of women to go on, it appears to be crucial to avoid empty promises and formal changes. Feminists must take into consideration the fact that implementing the legal changes on the official level is what the movement altogether must strive for. Making sure that women are paid as much as men, that administrative positions are occupied by women as much as by men, that women do get the same career chances as men, that politics allows for women to be equal opponents to men who can take the same positions at the governmental organs, is an evident change that claims the feminist movement to be successful in terms of their fight for human rights and equality. All in all, feminists who struggle in their battle for the right of not only women, but humanity as a whole, must look out for the empty promises and false changes; however, it is vital to concentrate on the fact of institutional change. For this reason, the women’s rights movement also considers the legal change to be institutional, as specified on this level the change in the community comes.

Nevertheless, the implementation of the initiative articulates itself quite evidently from the changes that follow from the initial steps that individuals make within a community. It occurs to be spoken of schools and kindergartens, but elementary schools specifically, where the children perceive the existent norm in their community, which they manage to impose on society in general. Thus, the changes in society that are perceived in early childhood influence the fact of the existence of the feminist movement and its success.

Eventually, by summing up, one has to underline the fact that there is an evident manifestation in modern society that the fight for women’s rights continues. The rise of the feminist movement wave, in which contemporary society appears to find itself, claims to have its success in various areas of the global range. It is vital that changes occur not only on the formal level, but also find their evident employment on the institutional level.

Women have been fighting to gain equal rights in the United States and abroad for a very long time. Much has shaped the way women are treated today. As early as the 1800’s, women rights activist worked to help make the playing field for women equal to that of men. This is evident in the letters that Abigail Adams sent to her husband, John Adams-who was about to be a part of the Constitutional Convention, in the late 1700’s.  In her letter, Abigail asked her husband not to forget about the women and the struggle they were encountering. Nonetheless, John Adams did forget about the women because he believed that adding them would place them in higher ranks than non-land owning men. In essence, he reminded her that he had more important tasks at hand because both Indian and African American men were attempting to attain equal rights. To this day, there is no official evidence supporting that the question of women rights ever was a topic at the convention. Women were not viewed as equals, and the mere thought of even placing such an issue on the floor was laughable to Adams and many other men of his day. Ironically, some women of the day felt the idea was outrageous. Although it is now the 21 st century, in some instances women have not gotten the equal rights they deserved because society has not done enough to remove negative stereotypes placed on women. Society has done a great deal to make the lives of women equal to those of men, but society will never be able to do enough to change society’s negative opinions of women.

During the antebellum era, women activist were not allowed to speak to audiences made up of women and men. This was very difficult for women activist to handle, especially Quaker members who were allowed to speak publicly in their own religious settings. As a result, both men and women members of the Quaker religion pushed for equal rights for women and an end to slavery. Many researchers cite the beginning of the American Woman’s Right Movement in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York. The meeting was organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. During the meeting, the women constructed what they called the “Declaration of Sentiments”. This was very similar to the wording of Declaration of Independence.  Nonetheless, the outbreak of the Civil War and the ongoing debate over slavery over shadowed the women’s movement (Baer, 1996 ). Eventually, the movement lost its momentum and attention was placed on the passage and ratification of the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments. Popular African-American supporter of the women’s right movement, Frederick Douglas said that women were in the “negro hour” (Baer, 1996 ). In other words, women of all colors were experiencing what African-Americans had been experiencing in their fight to break loose of slavery.

The first territory to grant women the right to vote was Wyoming in 1869. Many leaders of these western territories felt that this would bring new residents to their areas. Nonetheless, more established states were not quick to follow suit. The issue of women’s right continued to be split until NAWSA was formed in 1890. The National Suffrage Association was led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. With the outbreak of World War II, women felt a change had finally come. They were invited to join in the war efforts by helping to produce guns, ship, and bullets while working in factories. Finally, women had the opportunity to do something besides secretarial work. Women workers were making higher wages than ever before, yet they still weren’t equal to those of men. However, when the war was over, women were forced out of their jobs to make positions available for men returning  home from the war (Baer, 1996). Some women were happy to leave and get back to the normal life they were accustomed to. Yet, others were outraged. They were forced back into traditional women roles, housekeeping, and cooking, secretarial, and house-wife roles.  During the 1960’s the movement gained momentum again. I t is believed that women gained protest ideas from the Civil Rights Movement waged by African Americans during  this time. Men tried to stop women from protesting in anyway they could. Some husbands forbid their wives from working outside the home, and the women who decided to work any way were treated badly by their male dominated environments. Employers did not pay women wages equal to those of men, even when women performed at or above their male counterparts. During this era women were defined by their ability to clean their homes, rear children, decorate, and prepare luxurious meals for their husbands. Although women had gained the right to vote, they were still not seen as citizens equal to their male counterparts.

The number of women who hold corporate leadership jobs is proportionately lower than those held by men. For example, “Women make up more than 50 percent of the global population, but fill less than 20 percent of all parliamentary seats” (Freeman, 2001) Likewise, there are still few women political leaders. There are fewer opportunities for women in the field of medicine, professional sports, and especially jobs that require brute muscle or strength, is still dominated by men. For example, “Just as the overall labor market remains sharply segregated by sex, women executives are concentrated into certain types of jobs – mostly staff and support jobs – that offer little opportunity for getting to the top” (  Przeworski, 2007 ). Today, women still earn much less than men in the workplace. Often, promotions are granted by experience. Women are often away from their workplace due to woman related issues. For example, women often miss days of work due to pregnancy and delivery. Other women decide to stay home for several years to raise their children. Consequently, companies prefer to hire men rather than women because they don’t want to find a replace for a woman worker if she decides to have a child. Society punishes women for becoming mothers, or so it seems. If a woman does decide to become a mother, she is  likely to be passed up for promotions. While society still is unhappy with her choices. Society expects mothers to play a dominant role in their children’s lives, and often criticizes women for working outside the home.

In today’s society, women are often ostracized for just being born a woman. For example, “Girls are actually less likely to reach adulthood because of gender discrimination. Tens of millions of girls have been aborted, killed, undernourished, or terribly neglected due to their gender” ( Shelley & Pollack, 1993  ). There have been countless incidences in the media where a woman has been assaulted by a man in a sexual manner and the woman ended up in trial for the way she was dressed. On other occasions, the woman’s past sexual encounters have been just cause for dismissal of charges against the accused man. For example, if a woman has previously been a prostitute, society seems to think that it is impossible for her to not appease a man’s sexual advances. As a result, women who have led previous mendacious lives that society does not agree with are  very unlikely to report sexual or domestic abuse the received at the hands of male abusers. Women who have led these lives are often seen as somehow causing provocation to their male attackers. Nonetheless, so many women who have led shady lives in the past have turned their lives around and are living in a benevolent way.

In conclusion, women have been struggling to gain  rights equal to those of men, but it is a difficult task to change a person’s thinking and opinion. Society has done a great deal to aid women in their struggles, but society will never be able to change a great deal of deep rooted stereotypes that men, and some women, have about females and their intended roles.

Long Essay on Women’s Rights 500 Words in English

Long Essay on Women’s Rights is usually given to classes 7, 8, 9, and 10.

Feminism is a movement that has always stood up for women’s rights. It recognises the idea that individuals are treated differently based on their biological identities, and they still exist a dominance of the male gender. No matter what the environment is, be it a school or work, women are treated in a subordinate manner.

Across time and culture, women rights movement have changed in form and perspective. Many argue for the notion that women’s rights are in the domain of workplace equality. Still, many say that even domestic equality is in the niche of women’s rights.

There are exceptional circumstances like in case of maternity leave that women require unique treatments. In the USA the concept of maternity leave came up long back, and nowadays the idea has reached to the developing countries. Women of many countries are subjected to social ills, but if there are special provisions for the safeguard of women, then there can be women equality ensured.

The history of women rights movements could be traced back to the 1700s and the 1800s. The first-ever convention to take place in favour of women’s rights was in Seneca Falls, situated in New York. Later, the marriage protest of 1855 by Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell advocated the rights of women. They protested against the laws that bound women in their husband’s control and supported that women should have their own identity and should exist outside the control of their husbands.

The National Organization for Women or more commonly known as NOW was another step forward in women rights movements. It took place in 1966 and were entirely based on the idea of equality. This organisation wanted to provide equal opportunity to women so that as humans, their full potentials could develop.

In 1979, a United Nations Convention took place for discussing women’s rights. The main focus of this convention was to take suitable measures for removing all discrimination against women, which was a significant step forward in the women’s right movement. This convention made it clear that gender equality should exist in all sphere, no matter if it is economical, political, civil, social, or cultural. This convention looked forward to reducing all the prejudices against women, the abolition of sex trafficking or child marriages.

Europe saw the first-ever proto-feminist movements in the 19th century. This movement propounded the ideals of feminism, and such a concept inspired many women. The most well-known effect of this proto-feminist movement is the Female Moral Reform Society which gave the women a significant representation.

Ever since the historical times, women have actively participated in building the society. Several women took place in the first and the second world wars, and their works received not much recognition. The several waves of feminism that took place throughout the timeline reflected the contribution of women, and therefore we must realise their importance. We should build a society of equality and harmony where women are not in the suffering end.

The first wave of feminism took place as early as the 1800s and raised numerous challenges that later contributed to the women rights movement. The first and second waves raised questions on racial discrimination and inequality in society. Other than the feminist movements, there have been numerous conventions and organisations that have taken up this issue on their hands. There are multiple well-known feminists, like Alice Walker, who have stated that social activism is a step forward in promoting women equality and feminist ideals.

130 Women’s Rights Essay Topic Ideas & Examples

⭐ Simple & Easy Women’s Rights Essay Titles

📌 most interesting women’s rights topics to write about, 👍 good research topics about women’s rights, ❓ research questions about women’s rights.

Women’s rights essays are an excellent way to learn about the situation of the female gender throughout the world and demonstrate your knowledge.

You can cover historical women’s rights essay topics, such as the evolution of girl child education in various countries and regions or the different waves of the feminism movement.

Alternatively, you can study more current topics, such as the status of women in Islam or the debate about whether women’s rights apply to transgender women.

In either case, there is a multitude of ideas that you can express and discuss in your paper to make it engaging and thought-provoking. However, you should not neglect the basic aspects of writing an essay, especially its structure and presentation.

The thesis statement is critical to your essay’s structure, as it has to be at the center of each point you make. It should state the overall message or question of your paper comprehensively but concisely at the same time.

Afterwards, every point you make should directly or indirectly support the claim or answer the question, and you should make the relationship explicit for better clarity.

It is good practice to make the thesis a single sentence that does not rely on context, being fully self-sufficient, but avoids being excessively long.

As such, writing a good thesis is a challenging task that requires care and practice. Do not be afraid to spend additional time writing the statement and refining it.

It is beneficial to have a framework of how you will arrange topics and formulate your points so that they flow into one another and support the central thesis before you begin writing.

The practice will help you arrange transitional words and make the essay more coherent and connected as opposed to being an assortment of loosely associated statements.

To that end, you should write an outline, which deserves a separate discussion. However, the basics are simple: write down all of the ideas you want to discuss, discard the worst or fold them into other, broader topics until you have a handful left, and organize those in a logical progression.

Here are some additional tips for your structuring process:

This Amendment states that, “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” Everything that women worked for during the late 1800s to the early 1900s eventually helped them earn the right to vote.

Essay Sample On Women’s Rights

Thesis statement Feminism and women suffrage are major movements that help women to get their rights which are suppressed for a long time by misogynistic people. Introduction Women’s rights have been suppressed for a longer period of time by society and that is why various movements are coming to the light. From domestic violence to low wages for equal work and the hegemony of male partners are some of these oppressions. Here we will talk about the rights given to women to come out of these injustices caused to the women by men and other women as well. Main Essay Women Rights on Property and Election Earlier developed and underdeveloped nations used to put women’s rights related to property and election rights on the backfoot. But nowadays things are changing a lot and law systems along with various movements are giving equal status to women in society. Women suffrage and feminism is the leading chariot of giving justice to women in present-day society. After the coming of women’s suffrage in America, the entire scenario for women changed and now every woman gets the right to vote for choosing a government. Marriage and Abortion law for women History is big evidence to show that women have been subjugated in the name of marriage for a long time. But now marriage rights are getting in the favor of women and they can take an independent decision regarding their married life. For instance divorce law, baby adoption law, and property rights of women once they get married are framed in the favor of women. More, talking about the law regarding abortion of pregnant women only women are vested with the right to taking decisions related to the termination of their pregnancy. That is why we can say the scenario for women is changing with the help of making useful and relevant laws in their favor. Rights related to the Job Opportunities If we turn around our heads we can see today women are working in every sector of life. But a few decades back it was not a normal thing as females used to be considered inferior to men in their capabilities. Legal rights of equality for working make women strong in their careers in every field. That is why it is becoming a normal part of life for women these days. You can see how women are getting vocal about their rights in the workplace for equal wages for the work like that of men. Similar is the case with other dimensions of life where they are justifying their capabilities by doing extraordinary jobs. That is how a massive shift is being experienced by women to sustain in this world where men are given the utmost priority of rights. Gender roles are getting to an end with the coming of rights for women. Buy Customized Essay on Women's Rights At Cheapest Price Order Now Conclusion So from the above essay, we can say that the feministic approach and assistance of the law system is helping women to take their decision independently. More today women are getting out of the case defined to them in an earlier time by putting them within the four walls of the house. We can see the women equally rubbing shoulder with men in every field and have possession of property of various kinds. A major change in the marriage-related law can also be seen through the above arguments on women’s rights.

Women rights are the entitlements claimed for women and girls in the society. These rights go beyond the right to vote or even own property. For the past years women have been struggling to be considered individuals in their own right, defined by their own terms and by their own intellect and accomplishments, not their gender. They have fought to be accorded the same respect as their male counterparts politically, legally, in the office, in education opportunities and even in their own families. This struggle did not start yesterday. A woman is a symbol of love, independence, care and emotional intensity, be it love or hate.

An essay on women rights has to be written based on facts because it is something that has, is and will still affect the world in one way or another. The introduction of this essay has to grab the audience’s attention fully. Start with startling facts, either a statistical finding or a statement about women. It does not have to be new to your readers and can even be put in form of a question then add a sentence or two to elaborate. An example of such could be, “Did you know that American women who were jailed for demonstrating for the right to vote were force fed in prisons when they went for hunger strikes?” (WHMN, 2007) This question is enough to make your audience want to know more of what you are talking about. A few sentences explaining the topic in general terms can also act as an introduction as it gently leads your audience to your thesis statement. Definitions of key words like woman, rights and women rights in general come in handy. A brief overview on women rights, the struggle and how the society portrays women also contribute to a detailed introduction. The thesis statement should fall in the last line so that the ideas in the following paragraphs can flow based on it. An example of a thesis statement is, “women’s lives have drastically changed from having almost no freedom in the past to having a say in society today.”

How to write body for an essay on women’s rights

In order to have a free flow of ideas, a rough draft of the main points to be discussed in each paragraph has to be made. The body’s paragraphs have the same structure. Start by writing down the first point of your discussion in sentence form. This forms the topic sentence which is the basis of the paragraph. If your main idea is “religious perspective of women rights” then you can begin your paragraph by saying “women are viewed as God’s special gift to man”. Supporting statements should come thereafter with very clear and convincing elaborations. In this case, for example, quoted Bible or Quran verses can act as supporting statements that you can elaborate with your own words in three to five sentences. Correct use quotes and anecdotes appeals more to the hearts of the audience.  If you wish, include a summary statement at the end of the discussion.

How to conclude an essay on women’s rights

The conclusion brings closure to the reader by summing up all the points discussed. It also provides a final perspective on the topic .  Consider beginning your conclusion with a lead- in phrase but avoid the over used, clichéd and stiff terms like, “in conclusion” and “in closing”. All the main points discussed in the body are to be summarized in the last paragraph. The points, however, should be rephrased and not written word for word. Reintroduce the thesis statement in different words even if it’s only in passing. Remember, your thesis is your main point of discussion. Be authoritative, stand your ground undoubtedly. Fight for women rights passionately. Appeal to your audience’s emotions. Let your voice be heard clearly through your words. Avoid uncertain language like “I think” or “I am not so sure but” in your writing. Women’s rights are real issues, full of factual information and statistics. Do not apologize for your great ideas on women rights or use heavily- qualifying language. This is an issue that affects the whole world. If need be include a call to action. Convince people to change how they view women. Make them appreciate their role in their lives and in the society at large. All in all, the essay conclusion has to be short and straight to the point.

Essay about Women's Rights Movement

The fight for women 's suffrage movement.

The Women’s Suffrage Movement of the 1920’s worked to grant women the right to vote nationally, thereby allowing women more political equality. Due to many industrial and social changes during the early 19th century, many women were involved in social advocacy efforts, which eventually led them to advocate for their own right to vote and take part in government agencies. Women have been an integral part of society, working to help those in need, which then fueled a desire to advocate for their own social and political equality. While many women worked tirelessly for the vote, many obstacles, factions, and ultimately time would pass in order for women to see the vote on the national level. The 19th Amendment, providing women the right to vote, enable women further their pursuit for full inclusion in the working of American society.

Elaine Tyler May’s essay, Cold War Ideology and the Rise of Feminism and Women’s Liberation and Sixties Radicalism by Alice Echols both gave important but different opinions and ideas about the women’s movement. Also, the primary sources reflect a number of economic, cultural, political, and demographic influences on the women’s movement. This chapter

Essay on The Women's Rights Movement

The Women's Rights Movement was a significant crusade for women that began in the late nineteenth century and flourished throughout Europe and the United States for the rest of the twentieth century. Advocates for women's rights initiated this movement as they yearned for equality and equal participation and representation in society. Throughout all of history, the jobs of women ranged from housewives to factory workers, yet oppression by society, particularly men, accompanied them in their everyday lives. Not until the end of the nineteenth century did women begin to voice their frustrations about the inequalities among men and women, and these new proclamations would be the basis for a society with opportunities starting to open for

How To Write An Essay On Women's Rights Movement

It all began in 1848 with the Seneca Falls Women’s Rights Convention. Lucretia Mott was an early advocate for women’s rights (Stories). She came up with the idea for a women’s rights convention (Stories). Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Martha Wright, Mary Ann M’Clintock, and Jane Hunt all helped her in organizing the convention. Fredrick Douglass whom was also present at the convention worked with Mott in reporting the Seneca Falls Convention which was also printed at his office (Stories). Women wanted to be treated as equal to men and so spheres of influence were established, the cult of domesticity, and the development of the modern day feminist movement which evolved from the Women’s Rights Movement.

Women's Rights Movement Essay

The gender roles in America have changed tremendously since the end of the American Civil War. Women and men, who once lived in separate spheres are now both contributing to American society. Women have gone from the housewife so playing key roles in the country's development in all areas. Though our society widely accepts women and the idea that our society is gender neutral, the issues that women once faced in the late 1860s are still here.

The Women 's Suffrage Movement

Did you know that women in the United States did not have the right to vote until the year 1920? Exactly 144 years after the United States was granted freedom from Great Britain. The women’s suffrage movement, however, did not actually start until 1848, and lasted up until they were granted the right to vote in 1920. Women all over the country were fighting for their right to vote in hopes of bettering their lives. The women’s suffrage movement was a long fought process by many people all over the world, over all different races, religions, even gender. (Cooney 1)

Women's Movement Of 1960's Essay

The entire Women’s Movement in the United States has been quite extensive. It can be traced back to 1848, when the first women’s rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York. After two days of discussions, 100 men and women signed the Declaration of Sentiments. Drafted by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, this document called for equal treatment of women and men under the law and voting rights for women. This gathering set the agenda for the rest of the Women’s Movement long ago (Imbornoni). Over the next 100 years, many women played a part in supporting equal treatment for women, most notably leading to the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which allowed women the right to vote.

Women's Suffrage Rhetorical Analysis

The first meeting to discuss women's rights took place in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Convention in New York. It was there that Elizabeth Cady Stanton proposed equal suffrage for women. At that meeting, they drafted the Declaration of Sentiments which illustrated the oppression American women were facing. Although countless, courageous women would sustain this fight, it would be 1920, 72 years later, before Congress ratified the 19th amendment which gave women the right to vote (Timeline of Women's Suffrage). The defining moment in this long battle occurred in 1917 when Carrie C. Catt gave her magnificent speech on women’s suffrage to Congress. Catt’s use of ethos, pathos, and logos, helped persuade Congress to pass the 19th amendment.

2000 Dbq African American Democracy

During the late 1700s, women were not seen as being equal to men. They were imaged as one who stayed at home and took care of the kids. No one ever imagined a woman voting. Some women actually supported the fight in allowing blacks to vote. During the time the 15th amendment passed, many women who supported Women’s Suffrage were disappointed in which they were excluded in the idea of allowing “everyone” to vote. Before the Civil War, the movement for Women’s Suffrage started to pick up steam, but had become lost due to the interruption of the Civil War. One of the acts that stood out the most for Women’s Suffrage was the Seneca Falls Conference in 1848. This was organized by two American activists, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. They were the first to organize a conference to address Women’s rights and issues, and with sixty- eight women and thirty two men, they signed “The Declaration of Sentiments”, a document that was similar to the Declaration of Independence, but directed towards women’s rights. Getting suffrage for women was not an easy campaign. During 1890- 1919, many states were in a mix on their decision on suffrage for women. Some agreed with equal suffrage, others partial, and the rest wanted no suffrage at all for females as displayed in Document 6. Women’s Suffrage finally became a reality when it was ratified as an amendment (19th) in

On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enforcing that all American women had the right to vote, and were granted the same rights and responsibilities as men in terms of citizenship. Until this time, the only people who were allowed to vote in elections in the United States were male citizens. For over 100 years, women who were apart of the women’s suffrage movement fought for their right to vote, and faced many hardships and discrimination because of it. The American women’s suffrage movement was one of the most important political movements in history, and could not have been successful without the perseverance of many women over many years.

Essay about The History of the Women’s Suffrage Movement

Women’s suffrage, or the crusade to achieve the equal right for women to vote and run for political office, was a difficult fight that took activists in the United States almost 100 years to win.

Even as far back as the United States independence, women did not possess any civil rights. According to Janda, this view is also known as protectionism, the notion that women mush be sheltered from life's harsh realities. Protectionism carried on throughout the general populations view for many decades until the 1920's when the women's movement started. Women finally received the right to vote in the Nineteenth Amendment. The traditional views of protectionism, however, remained in people's minds until the 1970's (Janda et al, 2000: 538-539).

How it works

“Feminism is a periodic movement and political theory that takes the stand to fight for the constitutional, industrial, and civil rights for women. “Feminist theorists and activists share a commitment to end women’s subordination in both public and domestic life but determining what this means in practice is an ongoing source of contention” (Hanagan and Shanley). According to, the suffrage movement was challenged for numerous justifications for women, such as the right to vote, to work, and enjoy life free from brutality. So many people offer up the argument that women are not the “same” as men so there can’t be equality; namely, because their bodies are different, and because men and women have different physical capabilities, these physical differences mean equality is impossible. The Women’s Liberation Movement was an economical adjustment of women and feminist rationalism that became apparent in the late 1960s and prolonged into the 1980s, essentially in the modern populations of the western side, which influenced a notable transition globally. The Women’s Liberation Movement helped women gain the strength to fight gender discrimination, gain economic freedom, and find their sense of identity.

From the time when they are young to when they are all grown up, girls are continuously informed that they cannot do something, because of the simple fact that they are girls. Girls have experienced sexism in one point of their lives or another. It starts in school, and it continues after she has a career, where the man who has the same exact credentials and knowledge as her will be making more money. This has been going on for many years, but by making themselves heard, women now have more of the same opportunities that men had before. In “The Friday Everything Changed,” Anne Hart explains that even at such a young age, girls encounter sexism, but by letting their voice be heard, women can be of value and take the initiative in regard to being as equal to a boy, just as women have been doing for many years. Although women have made much progress in becoming more equal to men, there is still more room for change.

Since eternal, women have always been looked down upon and have been treated dishonorable, but due to some strong women standing up for what they believed in; women now have more of the same occasions as a man then before. Hundreds of years ago, women were evaluated as property because their husbands “owned” them, and these women did not have much freedom to do what they wanted; their job was to cook, clean, and look after the family. Women put up with bad treatment for a long time, until they got tired of it and spoke up. A noteworthy event in history where women spoke up and made change was the suffrage movement, where women fought for their right to vote. Through protests and campaigns, the women voice was heard, people listened and in 1920, women were granted the right to vote. Later, women could have different jobs and have more freedom than they used to.

This group of women who fight for all women to one day be equal to a man are called feminists. “Feminism is an interdisciplinary approach to issues of equality based on gender, gender oppression, gender identity, sex and sexuality as understood through social theories and political activism” (“What is Feminism?”). If it were not for feminism, women would not be able to do a lot of things they do today. Men are more accepting of a woman doing a “man’s” job today, but that is not to say that sexism is not still present. Starting from early childhood; the ideas of what a boy and girl are supposed to act like, what activities they can do, and all the other gender roles are embedded in who we are today, and it is hard to break out of the notion because it is repeated. In society today, women are breaking gender roles and becoming more independent, women are moving forward. Day by day these gender roles are being crushed, but all women must do is continue to speak up and let people know that their biological makeup is not a defect and that women are just as capable to anything that men can do.

In “The Friday Everything Changed,” Alma Niles started a movement in her classroom. All she had to do was say the words “Why can’t girls go for water, too?” Just like all other women who have ever spoken up about anything, boys and men are there to make fun or disregard what the girls have to say. The boys beat the girls down with words and threats, but it only makes the girls stronger, bringing them all together in support of squashing gender roles and fighting for equality. “Sexism in a society is most commonly applied against women and girls. It functions to maintain patriarchy, or male domination, through ideological and material practices of individuals, collectives, and institutions that oppress women and girls on the basis of sex or gender” (Masequesmay). Girls can experience sexism their whole lives, and it all starts in school and may continue for years after.

In “The Friday Everything Changed,” the boys are the only ones who were chosen to go get the water from the railway station, because the teachers are implying that the boys are superior, stronger than the girls. The young boys are being taught to be sexist, and they tend to hang out with other boys but will not allow girls to play with them. “Another common example of sexism in the younger grades was exclusionary behavior, such as not allowing a girl to play a game or even share a workspace” (Ligocki). In the story, the boys did not allow the girls to play softball with them, but today it is more common to see boys and girls playing with each other, as well as there are all girls sports teams, but sometimes girls are still excluded in activities. When a young girl grows up and finds a career, she will experience sexism in many aspects, and it will be up to her whether she speaks up about it or just deal with it. “The concept of sexism explains that prejudice and discrimination based on sex or gender, not biological inferiority, are social barriers to women’s and girls’ success in various arenas” (Masequesmay). The female stereotype brands women as caring, warm, deferential, emotional, and sensitive, but in the workforce, they are often seen as weak qualities.

A woman can be just as qualified as a man for a certain job position, but it is more likely that a man will get the job they both applied for. “Here’s where the male descriptive stereotypes come into play: competent, assertive, decisive, rational, objective. When managers have little information about what an employee or candidate is like, they fill in the knowledge gap with these descriptive stereotypes, often to the detriment of women” (Jaffe). Women can be more qualified for a job than a man is, but because of these stereotypes that have been branded on women, managers see women as less qualified. Men have a greater chance of moving up in the workplace not just because he is qualified, but because of the standard male characteristics that would make a man more suitable for the job. Not all women are as emotional and “weak” as men think they are, and can move up in the workplace and have their voices heard.

It is unfair because when a woman speaks up at work, she is scolded for not staying in her lane, but when a man speaks up, it is not even given a second thought because it is what is expected of a man. “They’re out of line, breaking the rules, violating the “should’s” of gender stereotypes,” says Hellman. “The issue is not: are they that way or not that way. The issue is: men and women are probably behaving the same way, but women are taking the hit for it” (Jaffe). A man and a woman with the same qualifications and same experience start a job at the same time, you would think that they would be paid the same salary, but that it not the case. Women are paid on average, twenty percent less than what a man is paid. Back in the days, it was rare for a woman to have a job, because women were known for being stay at home wives and mothers. Now more women are working to help or fully support their families, but it can be difficult when they are not being paid what they should be.

Men do experience sexism, but it is nowhere near as bad as what a woman must go through. Since the beginning of time, man has always been superior; they were rulers, presidents, soldiers, slave owners, and business owners. Men have always been revered for being so strong and brave, but when they do something that is more feminine and less “manly,” they experience sexism in the sense that they have their masculinity questioned. As said in the hit song by The Cure, “Boys Don’t Cry,” guys must constantly prove their masculinity and want to always feel superior. “You dreamed about it partly because carrying the water meant you were one of the big guys” (Hart). These young school boys want everyone to know that they are strong and manly, because it gives them a sense of pride, but they get defensive when their masculinity is questioned or threatened.

Men with a fragile masculinity tend to be more aggressive and louder because they feel like they must live up to the male stereotype that has been set up for them since they were young. “Because all the boys knew, from the moment Miss Ralston had spoken, that something of theirs was being threatened and that, as long as there was the remotest chance that any girl might get to carry the water, they had to do everything in their power to stop it” (Hart). Men are also trying to break their own gender roles, but today there are many male makeup artists and men who wear makeup out in public. Although, it still a touchy subject and there are still many people who are not accepting of males wearing makeup, more men are comfortable wearing makeup out in public. One gender role that some men are sensitive about and do not seem to be ready to change, is letting a woman pay for a meal or a date. Men want to pay, because they want to women to be dependent of them, and that is how it had always been. Men had their rights handed to them for the simple fact that they are a man, and although men experience sexism, they have always been looked up to and have been able to prosper. The only men who experience sexism are the ones who have fragile masculinity, but one day, the gender norms will be nonexistent, and it will be “normal” for boys to cry and wear makeup as it will be normal for a woman to play football and make more money than her husband.

Critics argue that the reason women were discriminated, didn’t have inequality, weren’t guaranteed freedom, and didn’t have an identity of themselves, because feminist magazines made women’s pain visible, leading to the growth of feminism, inequality, gender issues, and sexism. Women and men are not equal in physical strength, because men have come to power in society. In “Women Against Feminism,” critics argue that women’s main arguments against feminism are better understand the logic behind their anti-feminist stance (2013). In other words, the reason this campaign was started because, it regulates what types of arguments women used to debate feminism; and review why individuals don’t like feminism, why they think it’s useless, why they believe it to be negative to equality, and it gets a better understanding of the inference behind their decisions. For example, “Community member and writer Jinna states; if ‘Women Against Feminism’ were asked if they believe men and women should have equal human rights and equality before the law, the answer would be a resounding ‘Yes’. The blog raises issue with the modern practice of feminism rather than the fundamental definition of feminism” (Wikipedia). For this reason, critics argue that if men and women are equal before the law, feminism is irrelevant, and it abstracts from men’s rights issues. Therefore, critics believe that this movement is less about equality and rights, and more about dignifying and making men more powerful.

Although women have come a long way in becoming more equal to men and have proved to men that they can do things just as well as they can, sexism is still present in today’s society; but if all women can come together and speak up, their voices will be heard and they will all be equal. We have become more accepting of genders breaking boundaries and doing whatever they want, but it is sad that people spend a lot of time worrying about what others are doing and they are criticizing others for doing things out of the norm. “Those wanting to preserve traditional roles frequently make the case that the roles exist because they lead to a better, or more natural arrangement of society and institutions. Those wanting to eliminate gender roles often believe that such roles are not only arbitrary but also limiting and potentially damaging.” (“Introduction to Gender Roles”). These rules have been engraved in our minds that boys can’t do this, or girls can’t do that, and it is hard to break the cycle of gender roles, unless we speak out for what we believe in, and take the step to making a change. All boys and girls and men and women will be able to do whatever they feel comfortable doing, and we have progressed a lot since the beginning, but there is always room for improvement.”

Women are now rightfully granted all rights equal to men as men and women both are human and must have the same rights . It’s a pity that women were not treated equally by the male dominant society for centuries . Women were just thought to be the child bearing machines that must obey their husbands and fathers and sacrifice their lives for the happiness of others But things need to change.

Conclusion – 

If society cannot admit women’s free development, then society must be remodeled . Men and women are created equal and should be treated equal and If they aren’t , Women must fight for what is theirs by birth .

Some women learned to read and to write on their own ,they wrote about their experiences and the injustice happening with them .

“It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.” ― Jane Austen

People believe that it is the God that has made us , They are wrong , It is the women that have made us .

But still there are millions of women , who don’t get treated equally , In underdeveloped nations ; Domestic Voilence and rape cases are increasing at alarming rates and not only in underdeveloped nations , In developed countries too women face constant discrimination and inequality .


Women make this world a beautiful place

According to Wikipedia – Women’s rights are the Rights claimed for women and Girls worldwide. They formed the basis for the women’s rights movement in the 19th century and the Feminist movements during the 20th and 21st centuries. In some countries, these rights are institutionalized or supported by law, local custom, and behavior, whereas in others, they are ignored and suppressed.

After the women’s rights movement essay introduction, we move to the body, which is made of several paragraphs. Now, to remind you, the introductory paragraph was you giving a brief overview of what the entire paper is all about. And you went ahead to provide a thesis statement which brought out your position on the issue of women’s rights. Now in the body section, it will be all about giving information for support. What you write in the essay body is mainly based on the research you conducted. With more convincing data, you get to convince your readers. And for the instructor, we both know the excellent remarks that will come your way. This process is quite demanding and shouldn’t be taken lightly.

In this format we mentioned earlier, we’re assuming you’ll be settling for three as the number of paragraphs in your essay body. With that in mind, you’ll have to use such a limited opportunity effectively. Besides, the advantage of opting for a few paragraphs is that you’ll be able to concentrate all your energy to and come up with an intriguing text on women’s rights. We’d recommend you give each paragraph topic sentences that will guide direction on the women’s rights movement essay body. Typically, paragraphs go up to six sentences and therefore stick to five the least. This is keeping in mind the instructions issued by the instructor on how long the text should be or the least number of sentences per paragraph.

Here are some tips to keep in mind while working on the women’s rights essay body;

Maintain a logical flow of ideas

This goes all the way from the mentioning of the body paragraph topic sentence to the conclusion of each paragraph. We’re looking at a logical and sensible flow of information with the use of useful transition sentences to realize this. The key lies with the topic sentence, and it offers a transition from one paragraph to another while at the same time gives the content focus of that particular paragraph.

Avoid being overly general

Remember, this is the juice of the entire paper, and it calls for focused and targeted information. Like in our case approach, we opted for the three-paragraph option, and for this case, you’ll have to drive your point home within this limited space. It would be best first to consider the preferred options to explain your opinions to avoid excesses in terms of length and wordiness.

The Women’s Rights Essay Conclusion

This is the concluding section on how to write a women’s rights essay. Most times, readers are keen at this section to see how you’re going to conclude your text on women’s rights. Because it’s a sensitive topic in society, you ought to wrap it up style. Now, how do you look to make this happen? The best trick is to know your readers and what they expect from the text. Such information about your audience can enable you to coach your book to appeal to their needs and win them over (of course, with your initial intentions on the paper at the forefront). Give your audience a parting gift, more like – thank you are taking your time to go through my piece. Even better, you can make some propositions on women’s rights based on your essay and how best society can strive to achieve gender equality for all.

And just as the other sections of the women’s rights movement essay were that involving, this concluding section can as well distort your intended message if you’re not keen. You usually start with a welcoming sentence and while at that give you concluding information. Here you’re not supposed to add any new information or mention any fresh ideas and opinions that weren’t earlier on mentioned in the text. Wrap it by relating the ideas you suggested in the paragraph to the society of today at least to drive the point home more forcefully. Readers usually shake their heads to instances they entirely relate to.

Women’s Rights Essay Examples

With the knowledge above, here is women’s rights essay example you can learn from. We opted for some of the significant areas in the women’s rights front to build short essays. Go through and appreciate the structuring and content creation.

The Women’s Rights Movement

Here is a perfect example of a women’s rights movement essay

History lives to remember November 2 nd , 1920. This was the first time the female gender cast their first vote. Some magazines referred to that day as “The greatest voting day in history.” For all the women in the United States of America, it was a moment of pride and a day to remember. It was a long struggle of fighting with the system and their hard work and turmoil finally paid. After all, there was light at the end of the tunnel. A strong message of hope to all the women facing oppression out there, a polite reminder that the struggle is real and the results are worthy. This is all credited to the Women’s Rights Movement that was at the forefront to campaign for the rights of women in the society and the chance to vote heretofore changed the perception about women in the community.

This was secondary to the passage of the 19 th Amendment, which gave all the women in the USA a chance to vote. This didn’t come easy as it was as a result of an intense fight for the liberation of the female gender in American society. These campaigns began early 19 th century and had since given the community a fresh perspective on the power of a woman.

In general, women were viewed as lesser species despite the pain of labor and the nine months of carrying a baby in their wombs. Not forgetting the role they played in the homestead in terms of hygiene and kitchen matters. Their place was in the home and nowhere else. Outside the house, they had no duty except submission to the male gender.

It was popular opinion for the men to handle the more demanding chores like hard labor. Women, on the other hand, being lesser species were to stick to minute duties like taking of children and cooking. This subdued pressure from society is what made many women not to chase their dreams. Not every woman enjoyed staying at home while the man went on to fend for the family. Some wished for education and later employment, just so to play an active role in society.

Once married, women were properties of the husband and lost all their rights. A woman, even with all the resources required, could not own land, not unless permitted their husband. And this was as well subject to lots of scrutinies and wasn’t taken as a good show by society. Over time, some of these notions have changed, and women are seen as people like the men in society. And they do have a significant role to play in societal development

The big question is, “Hadn’t the fight for liberation from the British meant freedom from oppression, and this includes women too?” Besides isn’t July 4 th a celebration of freedom. Why do women celebrate this day, and yet you’re still stuck within the societal chains of oppression and belittling of the female gender. It’s about time women stood up for their rights and fight for what’s best for all. Aluta Continua!

Satire Essay on Women Rights

Here is a satire essay on women’s rights that should give you a rough overview of how you ought to approach this assignment;

It’s quite melancholic to the many women who happen to be flourishing in the society of today. It’s equally unfortunate that the so-called female gender is perceived as a cursed being just by being referred to as a lesser species. You’d wonder, why are that country fought for the colonial liberation for freedom only to still keep their women as captives.

Inhabiting the male carcass comes with its power which the society doesn’t quite comprehend how to best approach. Let’s take you back to the creation cosmology, whereby we see a woman being created out of a man’s rib. Well, what’s that going to do with men being superior plus just because you were created earlier doesn’t justify male superiority. Take a moment and look at the society of today with all the threatening demographics, would you be alive if not for your mother.

Females have hard to deal with hardships, like staying at home to take care of children, low pay, lesser jobs, and denial of power positions in the employment docket. The big question is, what has the female body got to do with that? All this has prompted the rise of the feminism war the fight for a just society whereby women are given equal opportunities as men. What happens when women win this feminism war, the so-called superior male gender will have to face the excruciating pain of being slaves of corrupt governance dominated by the lesser species (women). Picture this, a gender genocide that will be the extinction of all men.

The unresolved and always pending issue of the today society is gender inequality and equal opportunities for all. This problem is pathologic and cradles form the idealization of men as the epitome of power. This problem is rooted all around the world; with some countries going to extents of physical aggression the moment women try to express their devastation.

Is there a silver bullet to all this; I’d say the government has a significant role to play if you ask me. If only the legislators could sit down and come up with some of the practical policies that will strive to ensure gender equality and the provision of equal opportunities for all. And just like the Son of Man came down to save the society of Mosaic laws and bring light to the world, we dream of a day when a savior see to it that world leaders have a sit-down and come up with a working solution to this predicament.

However, the problem stems from the souls of the many individuals in the society. Yes, leaders can have a sit-down and come up with working policies, but then again, will the community go with the shift in power. It’s a truth universally accepted that men are fond of being superior and submitting to the issue of power play is by far, something that needs a paradigm shift for it to be realized. This is a world of individuals who are the same in every aspect. This is speaking in idealism, but then this can be accomplished. A world where everyone is the same gives no room for discrimination; this will be an excellent boost for the economy as everyone will contribute immensely in one way or another.

The present legislations are not rigorous enough to curb this ordeal. If at all we’re to contain this issue in the future, then we’ll have to decide between the two genders, which one to spare. The lack of coexistence will not stop anytime soon if something is not done, and one of the sexes is prone to extinction.

Women’s Rights in French Revolution Essay

Check out these women’s rights in the French revolution essay and appreciate a thing or two about women’s rights essay writing;

The women involved in the army during the French revolution was an opportunity to demand their freedom. Their roles are quite evident from the start of the revolution. However, their main concern was that of children’s welfare, and this made them hold back as the resources became less. We see instances where women beg the National Assembly to join the militia, but their attempts were unfruitful. They even went ahead to claim of their battle skills, but in as much as the French army needed a boost, women were officially banned from armies. One of the many demands by women during the French revolution was common-law marriages and equal rights as men.

A common feature about the women who took part in the French revolution is that they were born of aristocratic and labor origins. This partly explains their involvement in the conflict and the demand for equal rights as men. Such classes gave women an upper hand; they were ahead of events by being enlightened. The state of enlightenment prompted the women to form clubs like the Etta d Palmes Friends of Truth. Such forums gave women a chance to interact and express their views and opinions towards the French revolution. Through this, the women mastered how to become citizens rather than subjects to the French king.

The women of the French revolution demanded equal rights in marriage, which was something the French men couldn’t agree. Some of the other reasons they required include; right to divorce and property ownership.

The women also played a decisive role during the French revolution. For instance; during the famine, women marched to the civic center to enhance their problems and find bread for their children.

Essay on Women’s Rights in Islam

In Islamic culture, women also had a role to play in fighting for their rights. Here is a short essay on women’s rights in Islam;

It is popular opinion that women in Islam are subjugated, degraded, and oppressed. However, is that the situations on the ground or those are just notions? Let us take you back in time 1400 years ago. We see the Islamic culture granting women rights that to the then western community it was a dream for the many subjugated women. It was in the early 20 th century than the civilization of the West granted women some of the rights; while on the other hand, this had taken place a long while ago in the Islam culture.

The Islam culture has honored women by granting them the opportunity to keep their original names. This is a grand chance that many communities in western culture fail to practice even today. This depicts how the Muslim society has uplifted the women gender and just as it’s written in the Qur’an, “And for women are rights over men, similar to those of men over women.”

The women’s rights essay is just like most other research essays, but what makes the difference is the sensitive aspect. Now, how about you put to practice some of the winning tips we just gave you on how to write a women’s rights essay and you’ll be good to go.

Women's Suffrage Argumentative Essay

Six well-bred women stood before a judge in the Washington D.C. police court on June 27, 1917. Not thieves, not drunks, not prostitutes, like the usual attendants there. They included a university student, an author of nursing books, a prominent campaign organizer, and 2 former school teachers. All were educated accomplished and unacquainted with criminal activity, but on that day they stood in a court of law with their alleged offense, “Obstructing traffic”. What they had actually done was stand quietly in front of the White House holding banners, urging president Woodrow Wilson to add one sentence to the constitution: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any account of sex”. The debate over Women’s Suffrage stretched from the mid 1800’s to the early 1900’s, as women struggled to gain a voice in politics.

Essay On Women's Rights In The 1930s

Women’s rights and the way they live has changed greatly over the course of time. Back in the day, women did not have equal rights to men and they had to face many challenges in order to receive the jobs they wanted. Nowadays, women can get the same jobs as men and their power is much more appreciated.

Feminism In One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

Throughout history, there has always been a rivalry between the two sexes and in the end the women have always come in second place. Time over time it has been proven difficult for women to hold any type of power that they have wanted except for the tasks that they have been given due to their gender. In society and in their own homes, it has been difficult for women to grow and sustain their power beyond the limits that they have been given. Women have been differentiated from men and have been discriminated with regard to jobs and other types of privileges that they have wanted. Throughout the course of history, they have been denied many freedoms that every man has and they want to be equal to their counterparts. In 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified in the United States of America and developed the women’s suffrage. Slowly, women are receiving the freedoms of being their own person rather than this stereotypical woman figure that has been long awaited for because they should already be treated equal among men. The key features that women have been viewed as stereotypical is femininity, care, nurture, maternity, and dependent upon men. Society expects women to have the ideal feminine characteristics; however, women do not always generally have those types of traits and can have some just like men.

It’s shown through the speech that the federal constitution says “we the people”, the government has no right to take away rights from just one gender, and that women are considered people as well. The fact that the constitution says “we the people” is a primary point in this speech.

Women's Rights Movement

The issue of women’s rights and how different societies and cultures deal with it had been on the table for many centuries. In the United States of America during the 1800s, women began to move toward and demand getting equal rights as men, they decided to speak up and fight for their stolen rights. In the 1960s, continued working toward their goal, women broadened their activities through the women’s rights movement which aimed to help them in gaining their right to receive education, occupy the same jobs that were once titled only for men, and get an access to leadership positions. The women’s rights movement has a great impact on women today, although it started a long time ago, but it did not stop and women are reaping their fruit today,

Women's Suffrage Reaction

The declaration of independence states that all men and women are created equal. This document, along with the constitution, is what the administration of the United States was founded on. The men who created these documents were citizens striving for equal rights and representation in government. Ironically, these rights the founding fathers worked so hard to create for themselves were not granted to women in their newly established nation. Fortunately, due to the tireless work of decades of activist’s, laws have changed, amendments added to the constitution, and rights granted to those who were previously unjustly denied. One of these victories for women’s rights occurred when women were granted the right

Women's Equality In The 1920s

America gained its independence in 1776 with the expectation that every American should have liberty and equality. However, American women did not have the right to vote until 1920, which was almost more than 140 years after the United States was established. Women could do little to protect themselves and promote their careers due to being treated unequally and inferior to men. During the 19th and the early 20th century, women were working hard and fighting for gender equality, so that more and more women could live a better life with basic civil rights in their hometowns. In reality, women’s equality was challenged by traditional conventions in the fields of biological difference in sexes, religion and gender roles, and different perspectives towards these conventions of different people made women’s civil rights controversial.

Women's Rights In Colonial America

More than 140 women came to Virginia from 1620 to 1622. Women in colonial America had extremely hard working conditions. They were called upon to enable household order. Women were to wake up early in the morning before the sun rose to the late afternoons after the sun went down to maintain the house while preparing meals (which could take hours) before the husband woke up, doing laundry, mending clothes, livestock, working in the fields and gardens, tending to the children (most mid wives had 5-8 children), and many other tasks. Most of all the women abilities were learned from their mothers. Men believed women did not need an education because women were to work at home and tend to the children. Wives of the wealthy had very different lives

Cult Of True Womanhood Analysis

“The only true woman was a pious, submissive wife and mother concerned exclusively with home and family.” This idea, called the “Cult of True Womanhood” by historians, led women to develop a new way of thinking about what it was to be a US citizen. In the first ever women 's rights convention in 1848, a group of women and men gathered to address the lack of women’s rights. They agreed that both men and women were created equal and should have the same alienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; meaning they should have the right to vote. In 1890, the idea that men and women are equal, and for that women should be able to vote was discarded, and a different option came up; women and men are different and that is the main reason

Similarities Between Abigail Adams And Declaration Of Sentiments

Over the years, women all over the world have spoken out about the rights they should have as men’s equals. Since the start of the women’s rights movement in America, amazing progress has been made, and is still being made as time goes on. We would not be where we are today, however, without some of the great help of women such as Abigail Adams and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Both of these women wrote documents on the issue of equality, Adams writing Letter to John Adams, and Stanton writing Declaration of Sentiments. While it is clear that the two of them shared a very similar viewpoint, the way that they expressed their ideas in their writings differ in a few ways.

Women's Rights Argumentative Essay

Men have always been superior, but women are getting closer and closer every step of the way.

Essay On Women's Rights In The 20th Century

The 20th century saw a major increase in women’s rights, getting a step nearer to gender equality. It is defined as the act of treating men and women equally, having the same access to right and opportunities no matter the gender. Although it is not a reality in our world, we do have advanced in comparison to the last century. At the begging of the 20th century women still were considered the weak gender. Their education consisted on learning practical skills such as sewing, cooking, and using the new domestic inventions of the era; unfortunately, this “formal training offered women little advantage in the struggle for stable work at a liveable wage” (1). Their role in society was believed to be that of wife and mother but our mind was changing. Women started to fight for some rights such as the access to the labour force during World War I, the improvement in education allowing women to attend university, and the equality within the marriage, in order to avoid subordination of women. Probably their greatest achievement was the access to the electoral process in the United States of America. Earning the right to vote meant a recognition of women power and intelligence, as well as their ability to participate in politics. This essay will analyze how women fought for their right through some feminist movements.
