Author(s): Gurpreet Kaur Brar
Abstract: Women are the largest minority in the world and suffer suppression of personality. Women also have the right to life and liberty; they also have the right to be respected and treated as equal citizens. Their honor and dignity cannot be touched or violated. Absolute poverty and the feminization of poverty, unemployment, the increasing fragility of the environment, continued violence against women. The advancement of women and the achievement of equality between women and men are a matter of human rights and a condition for social justice and should not be seen in isolation as a women’s issue.
