Our Rights As Women by Bilkis Olagoke
Human rights are women's rights. Yes! right to life, right to education, right to marry without discrimination, right to equal pay for equal work, right to social security, right to take part in cultural life, right to inheritance,.......... The question now is: Do we really know our rights as women? Are we not allowing religion and culture to impose themselves on our rights? In what way do women themselves deny their rights? Is there a way out? The question could go on and on. But the fact still remain the same, we women also have rights and our rights must be promoted and respected at all levels.
