Women's Rights

Women's Rights

Rights that promote a position of legal and social equality of women with men.


Proponents of feminism believe additional rights and protections are necessary to ensure equality across the gender spectrum. They argue gender biases and prejudices prevent women from being full participants in society.


Proponents of antifeminism believe that men and women are already equal under the law. They sometimes argue that women's rights advocates are fighting against historical, religious, and natural distinctions between men and women.
