Women’s rights are such a large, complex, interpretive and convoluted topic of discussion, yet one that is frequently debated and rigorously defined. As the world consists of 50% women, it is no surprise that rights that effect women’s movement, dress, education, and economic work and activity are a hot topic for discussion and debate. To be a woman is to be engaged in some sort of dialogue with women’s rights, as you either conduct yourself in a way that supports the confines of what rights you are contextually afforded, or defy and challenge their limitations.
As a woman that has come from a position and ability that is privileged, I do not feel able or comfortable speaking on behalf of women that come from different experiences than my own. Since I still feel unable to speak to the issue with any sense of experience or authority, I will be interviewing an academic and activist on the matter in the weeks to come.
