Women’s Rights-Editor’s Note

By: Amelia Gutierrez

Women have dealt with gender discrimination for a very long time ranging from cultural issues, political, to economic.

In Saudi Arabia, women have experienced a lack of equality. The Black Ribbon Campaign rose to fight inequality by arguing for same rights and protesting in their cars. To bring attention to their campaign, women around the world wear a black ribbon around their wrists to show that women are still striving for equality.

Women have yet to exist in China. The male dominated culture is derived from the “Confucian tradition,” and women is considered lower than men.

Like many women in other countries, Nigerian women deal with domestic violence, and are victims of female genital mutilation, which is of special concern. Afghan women created a foundation named The Revolutionary Association of Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), which strives to regain Afghan women rights.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s 2007 draft political program put forth an Islamic religious council that would prohibit women from running for president.
