Women's rights are the rights and entitlements claimed for women and girls of many societies worldwide. Although males seem to have dominated in many ancient cultures, there are some exceptions. During the 19th century some women began to ask for, demand, and then agitate and demonstr... ate for the right to vote, the right to participate in their government and its law making. In the subsequent decades women's rights again became an important issue in the English speaking world. By the 1960s the movement was called feminism. In 1946 the United Nations established a Commission on the Status of Women. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948, enshrines 'the equal rights of men and women', and addressed both the equality and equity issues. The present book highlights, considers and discusses various contemporary issues of women rights. It is hoped that the present edition of this book will be beneficial to all concerned of the society, in general and students, lawyers, advocates, academicians, human rights institutions, researchers and NGOs working in women rights field, in particular.
