Every society in the world has faced some sort of gender-specific discrimination at some time in human history, and in some countries the violations of women’s human rights are ongoing and extreme. For this reason, the human rights of women are an extremely important topic, as the struggle to have th... ... middle of paper ... ...ferior” woman (188). Social systems are built around the common belief of the inferiority of women, and these ideologies violate a woman’s human right to live their life free of discrimination. Furthermore, the consequences of these discriminatory ideologies is often violence towards women which also violates a woman’s human right to safety and security. The action of sexual assault violates many of the victim’s human rights, such as their right to safety, and right to be free from inhuman treatment.
In this case women are stuck where in no matter how they act or how they dress, they end up put into a label they do not necessarily belong in. The main goal of feminism is to create equality for women and fight against the labels put on them. Though throughout time feminism itself has been given a negative label. In today 's society women do not want to be referred to as feminists from fear of being labeled as a bitter man hating woman. This is definitely amplified in media today.
With this astonishing lack of feminism in society the world needs to allow it back in as how society functions, but before that will ever happen, the world needs to look at why it needs it, what it is which includes the stereotypes associated with it, and ending with the goals of women right’s activists. Without the feminist ideology present in culture, many people have suffered and continue to suffer. Over a century ago, the suffragette movement started and boys are still raised to believe that they are superior (“Society” 3). This is evident in the ways females are stereotyped, treated, and thought of. Many women get accused of being hysterical when trying to discuss issues relating to the unfairness (“Society” 2).
The portrayal of women greatly influenced the way John Steinbeck wrote this story. In The Chrysanthemums, John Steinbeck intends to suggest that all women are not equal to men in society. Elisa understands this when she is not able to take part in the same male oriented activities that her husband takes part in. Elisa is seen as a lesser of a person just because of her gender. That demoralism of women leads me to believe that Steinbeck thought all women were insignificant.
The media uses this to persuade people and one thing it does is objectify women.

We need strong-willed women in every aspect of leadership and to protest the sexism the media creates. We’ve come a long way since the awareness to sexism in the 1960s but to get America back on track and end sexism we need women to stand up for themselves.

Societal discrimination based on grown beliefs and values leads to misconceptions with women making them vulnerable to sex bias. Discrimination also is unfair and disabled people not only cannot work or are easily forgotten about in work or society but also they try and change to fit the harsh terms society’s lives are based upon. Thematic Presentation There is a link between all of the articles. The links act as a connection all relating and coming back to the idea that discrimination is a main factor in the lives of people with mental, emotional or physical disabilities. People suffering with disabilities live complex lives in which things such as being a girl, or looking for a job or walking out in public are looked at and picked apart giving them nothing but a hard time.
Even though there are laws against discrimination of women, it is really a substantial issue. Violence of all kinds against women is routine and it is seen like not a serious problem. Educational attainment, political participation, and limited mobility are three major and have negative results of gender discrimination against women. Girls in developing countries, such as Iraq women are not getting the basic education they deserve. The article claims, "When it comes to education, girls worldwide get the short end of the stick."
‘Pakistan is one of the developing countries and there are various un-researched and ignored problems that are hindering its way to stand out as a stable country. One of those is the violation of human rights. Women rights in Pakistan are freely being violated and there are almost negligible systems working to provide equal rights to women in Pakistan. There is one inconsiderate aspect to women rights and that is the prevalence of child marriages. Government of Pakistan is extremely indulged in its political concerns that it is side-tracking its social problems which are gradually deepening its roots in this society where injustice is not only the story of present but also following as a dark shadow into its future.
The multiple realities of structural and individual oppression that women experience not only differ greatly among the west and non-west, but within the non-west there are also divisive structures that prevent women from having the same “needs” or “interests” (493). While Chanda explains that the developed and under-developed worlds influence one another, such as the effects of western aid for both worlds, feminist “bourgeoisie colonial-language-educated academic(s)” (487) need to understand that third-world communities, tribes, or castes which were made by colonial powers to uphold their position, are further divided by class (490). These colonial divisions that have been internalized by women in “post”-colonial locations, and their further exacerbation by class, make collective action in the third-world seem impossible, problematic considering that Chanda argues that feminism will be made “a prop for patriarchy if collective action is not constantly exercised and kept in view” (490). Considering this critique, Chanda furthers her argument by explaining that if many women share threatened material realities
