Woman's Human Rights In Perspective

My good friend J writer 4, whos blogspot link I will leave for you to view,made a great video on Human Rights and Rape as Genocide.I decided to conduct my own research on the topic, and I was amazed at the lack of legal protections of Woman's Human rights.Woman's humans rights recieved scant attention before the 1990s, and to bring awareness to this issue The Woman's Rights Project of Human Rights Watch and The Woman's Rights Advocacy Program of the International Human Rights Law group, were established to bring forth activisim for Womans Rights.Why were womans rights given little attention in the mass society?Institutional and structional factors, such as lack of representation in national governments and international governments led to the lack of insight of Woman's Human Rights.What are Woman's Rights?Certain Individuals like to believe that Woman's Rights shouldn't be labeled as Woman's Rights but strictly Human Rights.Woman's Rights are Human Rights, but when it comes to Forced pregnancy and sexual violence in cultures where its socially accepted, Womans rights are violated.In Islamic countrys death by stoning of woman for adcriultery is a normal pratice.Not much is said and thought about it.Rape as a war crime is a violation of Human rights, and when it comes to African woman being raped in War times not much is said.In 1992 during the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegivina. The U.N. established a tribunal to prosecute whom ever commited these horrid acts.If the U. N. wants to prosecute individuals for Human Rights violations, why dont they prosecute everyone and not turn there heads on African Woman.There human arent they?
Link to Jwriter4's 30 minute video on Femicide enjoy.
