There are many women’s rights we need to fight for in this world. Women are disproportionately affected by many harmful issues in life, which is why, while all human rights must be fought for, there are some that must be focused on in terms of women so the issues can be effectively tackled. Thus, I have compiled a list of several women’s rights we need to fight for.

1. Getting Rid of Female Genital Mutilation

Of all the women’s rights we need to fight for, the eradication of female genital mutilation tops the list. Over 125 million women and girls that are alive today have experienced female genital mutilation. This painful experience leaves girls dead, bereft of dignity, akin to a more troublesome childbirth, as well as many other calamities. This practice has been around for thousands of years, usually to keep women from experiencing sexual pleasure and to allow men to have a greater sexual experience. This practice is cruel must be fought against to protect the well-being of women all over the world.
