Human rights are inherent rights of all people regardless of race, gender, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion or any other status. The characteristics of human rights that help to protect and maintain human existence and dignity are that they are universal, indivisible, inalienable, inalienable and inalienable. Human rights are available to all, regardless of gender, and anyone who denies these special rights denies humanity. But despite the nature of human rights, when compared to men, women’s rights are often violated due to the conditions inherent in their femininity. Because of this, she has been identified as a particularly vulnerable group by international law. She often faces gender-based violence and is a frequent victim of human trafficking. In addition, women around the world are victims of sexual violence and harassment, as well as discrimination in the workplace.
