All of us are entitled to human rights. These include the right to live free from violence and discrimination; to enjoy the highest physical and mental health standards attainable; to be educated; to own property; to vote; and to receive an equal salary.

But many women and girls still face discrimination on the basis of sex and gender across the globe. Many issues that affect women and girls overwhelmingly are underpinned by gender disparity, such as domestic and sexual abuse, lower wages, lack of access to education and insufficient healthcare.

Women should be able to live without fear of gender-based violence, including rape and other sexual violence, female genital mutilation (FGM), forced marriage, forced pregnancy, forced abortion, or forced sterilization. We are human, we deserve rights!
