An analytical study to prove that exploitation against women is a violation of human rights

Abstract: “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights”.
-Hillary Clinton
The recent global movement for women’s human rights has achieved considerable re-thinking of human rights as previously understood. Since many of women’s rights’ violations occur in the private sphere of family life, and are justified by appeals to cultural or religious norms, both families and cultures (including their religious aspects) have come under scrutiny. The recognition of women’s rights as human rights has been taking place on the global stage-from the grassroots to the international conference levels- in the last two decades. This has required considerable re-thinking of human rights. Many specific human rights that are crucial to women’s well-being need to be identified and acted on to stop clearly gender-related wrongs. This paper shows how many such rights cannot be recognised as human rights without some significant challenges both to that concept itself and to some institutions basic to the various human cultures, certainly families and religions. Some of the interesting connections are explored; because some of women’s most basic rights-to freedom of movement and to work outside of the home, and to bodily integrity and freedom from violence-have been very much in the news. In this paper it has been attempted to analyse and prove that violence to women is a violation to human rights
