Economic Problems in Society
“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.” John F. Kennedy shows how important Human Rights is everywhere. If one law is broken against Human Rights, pandemonium is expected from other citizens. The Human Rights system has been around for over 200 years in American history and is continuing to bring peace and stopping deter aggression, but many countries in the world seem to forget about Human Rights or forget about the meaning to live as a human being. China and North Korea both hold strict rules and regulations on how families in that country should live. In Iran, people can be executed just for being gay. There are many different fields in which Human Rights needs to be looked at and reformed properly through strategic methods that will help ratify peace. The way to restore Human Rights properly is by having the Private Sector and Voluntary Sector, since not government ran, provide the ones harmed by violations given care and having rehabilitation for the accused, otherwise chaos could break loose.
Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, always wants to ratify Human Rights to make it the safest it can ever be. She states Human Rights as a, “God given entitlement of every human.” Minorities are another way that Human Rights are violated. Religious Freedom is the ability to say and think what you want without the state prohibiting them from doing so. The government is learning more about these different religions, rather than denying them to not believe in their cultures. Religious leader and activists are blackmailed and sometimes murdered. We have harassed, bullied and even tortured people just for being different. For example, a doctor was brought back to safety from Eastern Congo. A man of great care when it comes to patients who have been assaulted or injured throughout the conflict in that area. He was targeted and watched his staff die...

...Violation of Women’s Rights in India
Women rights are rights that are inherent to being Women. Humanrights include the right to life, to security of the person, freedom from torture, freedom of expression, and much more. Everyone is entitled to enjoy these rights without discrimination. All women have the right to be safe and free from violence.
In India women constitute nearly fifty percent of our population. Women are denied humanrights from the cradle to the grave. In India the situation leaves much to be desired. Sexual abuse and flesh trade are gnawing evils, which threaten the existence of women as independent entities
· Domestic violence: Violence against women in the family occurs in developed and developing countries alike. It has long been considered a private matter by bystanders -- including neighbors’, the community and government. But such private matters have a tendency to become public tragedies
· Traditional practices: In many parts of India, women fall victim to traditional practices that violate their humanrights. The persistence of the problem has much to do with the fact that most of these physically and psychologically harmful customs are deeply rooted in the tradition and culture of society. Son preference affects women in many countries, particularly in...

1. Under the heading “Labour Rights as HumanRights” on page 134 of reading 1 (“Labour Rights as HumanRights in the Age of Globalization”), the authors assert that “there are two principal manners to conceive of labour rights.” In the two paragraphs which immediately follow that statement, the authors list differentrights that are encompassed under each of these two approaches. Please identify FOUR kinds of labour rights emphasized under the first approach, and FOUR kinds of labour rights included under the second approach. (W1)

...Women, Crime and Justice
May 15, 2013
Human traffickers are often involved in other crimes as well (p.212). Some are also drug trafficking or weapon smuggling (p.212). Albanian organized crime gangs kidnap girls and bring them to Russia and the United Kingdom (p.212). Human traffickers are all over the globe, victimizing young girls and women. There are not enough programs or laws to stop it. First, the world needs to be educated on this crime in order to start preventing it from happening.
Targeted victims are usually thrill seekers (seeking new employment or adventure), visiting family abroad, and/or displaced young girls such as runaways, drug addicts, child prostitutes etc… These victims are usually 12-24 years old. Sometimes victims themselves are forced to abduct or recruit other girls. The younger the victim, the longer they can work for the sex traffickers and the more money they will make them. Once victims reach a certain age, they are undesirable and unappealing and are replaced by younger girls.
Traffickers use many methods to recruit their victims. Newspaper advertisements, mail order brides, and verbally promising a better life, more money during economically hard times. The victims may be told by traffickers that the victims have a lot of money for traveling, housing accommodations and food; but the victims are required to pay the traffickers all of their money when being forced...
...The Role of Media in
Afghan Women’s Rights
The world is becoming global and integral, and women already have to be strong and well equipped. Nature deliberately created us a certain way, precisely to allow everyone to be integrally connected to the general system by way of their maximum actualization in it. A woman’s personal, individual, and unique participation does not contradict the integrality of the whole system, on the contrary, women have a unique perception of life and a great sense of responsibility that should be appreciated and developed. Instead of suppressing women, we must provide integral upbringing and education in order to build an inclusive human society which is based on mutual support and participation in different ways.
The Persian Empire (Iran) established unprecedented principles of humanrights in the 6th century BC under the reign of Cyrus the great .three centuries later, The Mauryan Empire established principles of civil rights. In Cyrus time, Afghanistan was a part of Persian Empire, so Afghanistan can be called “The Land of HumanRights” and of course women had much highlighted position in that time …, Discrimination and violence against women has occurred in Afghan society for centuries. In Afghanistan violence against...
...against women is rooted in a global culture of discrimination which denies women equal rights with men and which legitimizes the appropriation of women's bodies for individual gratification or political ends.
* Violence against women feeds off discrimination and serves to reinforce it. When women are abused in custody, when they are raped by armed forces as "spoils of war", or when they are terrorized by violence in the home, unequal power relations between men and women are both manifested and enforced.
* Violence against women is compounded by discrimination on the grounds of race, ethnicity, sexual identity, social status, class, and age. Such multiple forms of discrimination further restrict women's choices, increase their vulnerability to violence and make it even harder for women to obtain justice.
* There is an unbroken spectrum of violence that women face at the hands of people who exert control over them. States have the obligation to prevent, protect against, and punish violence against women whether perpetrated by private or public actors. States have a responsibility to uphold standards of due diligence and take steps to fulfill their responsibility to protect individuals from humanrights abuses.

...Women's RightsViolations in Afghanistan
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "True peace is not merely the absence of tension, it is the presence of justice.” It means that without equality, there is no real end to a conflict. Equality is one of the many humanrights every person is entitled to. It is never acceptable to deny people their basic humanrights; however, this has occurred frequently throughout history. A wide variety of groups have been discriminated against through violations of humanrights, but women have faced this hardship the most. Times have changed, and many women now possess their deserved humanrights, but others are less fortunate. In the book, A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini, humanrightsviolations against women occur regularly. When young Laila considers marrying instead of gaining an education, her father talks her out of it. To reassure her, he says, “when the war is over, Afghanistan is going to need you as much as its men, maybe even more. Because a society has no chance of success if its women are uneducated...no chance” (Hosseini 103). All of the women in A Thousand Splendid Suns are affected by a variety of humanrightsviolations. Women in Afghanistan face intolerable, cruel treatment on a...
...Humanrightsviolations are a major occurrence in many countries throughout the world. Humanrights include being free from abuse, assault, and exploitation. Major violations in these countries include human trafficking, exploitation of women and children, discrimination and abuse. The scope of this analysis includes humanrightsviolation against women and children in Ghana, Columbia and India; three different countries on three different continents. The United States and large U.S. corporations have trade agreements and conduct day- to- day business in each of these countries. These powerful entities have an obligation to not only conduct responsible business but to also ensure the social welfare of the local population.
The United States is one of Ghana’s primary trading partners and many U.S. businesses have market share in the West African country. The U.S. has maintained a trade agreement with Ghana since the year 2000, and has good political and business relationships with the country. However, there is a startling amount of violence and abuse occurring with its society. Despite our country’s close financial ties with Ghana, the population is suffering, without any attention or action being taken by the U.S. population. According to the Department of State, “violence against women and children; female genital...
