Womenrights remain a critical and relevant topic of discussion in thecurrent society. The relevance is driven by the fact that womenremain an under-represented group in most spheres in our society. Thetopic touches on women and young girls who are marginalized,victimized or discriminated by the societal systems. Numerous liberalgroups are concerned with human rights groups, civil society,international political economy, and the development in the socialspace among others.
Womenconstitute a significant portion of the world’s population, butmost of them are often discriminated by the biased policies andinstitutions in most communities. According to the feminists’knowledge, men cause the problems they face. Sociology by itself isbased and constructed around the man’s shared world. Based on theseaffirmations, it was important to create a special topic on humanrights that particularly championed the rights of women (Wetzel,2016). Some of the interventions to address the problem includesocio-economic empowerment and equality laws. The use of feministviewpoint involves the application of contemporary techniques inaddressing the plight of humankind, especially the women. Throughsuch an outlook, the feminists can consider the social world and moldapproaches that can transform the perceived worldviews towardsattaining a better society.
Thefindings will assist in proposing recommendations that advocate forappropriate policies and legislations to address women discrimination(Cook, 2012). Learning about the topic gives one an opportunity toexamine several measures that can assist in enhancing equality aswell as eliminating incidences of violence against women. I havesince changed my views about women rights thereby, recognizing theneed to provide more opportunities as well as change policies andlegislations to address the special needs of women in our society.
