Yeah, they don’t! Even though the title said enough, still I’d like to expound more.
Women do not have equal rights to men rather more rights as compared to dudes of this century. It must be a big shock for most feminists when confronted with reality, yet it is a stark fact. It is time women all around the world start to know some of their important legal and moral rights that the women enjoy and men don’t.
Women cannot be called to Police Station
According to this law, in India women cannot be called physically to the police station for interrogation. She may be interrogated at her residence in the presence of lady constable, friends or family. They cannot be forced to go to police station for interrogation or queries. While men do not have any privilege in this case.
The Right to become Caregivers
When a parental relationship break down the custody laws of children falls in favor of mothers. The woman is a primary caregiver while the man is a tertiary caregiver in most cases. If a man wants to win the custody of children, he must prove that he is worthy of equivalent parenting. This proposition is not only difficult to prove but also extremely expensive. This phenomenon is known as shared custody that requires tertiary caregivers to prove themselves which is costly as well as challenging. Under the laws being implemented in most of the states, women almost always win the custody of her children.
Women may choose Parenthood
Women of this age are entitled to some legal options that allow them to absolve themselves from kids financially and morally in case they do not wish to take the responsibility.
- They can abort their baby before it is born.
- They can leave their infant and walk away according to Safe Haven Law.
- They can put their child up for the adoption process without even identifying or notifying the father.
Moreover, the mother has all the legal backing to force a father into providing all financial support to bring up the child. In some states, the father can be forced to pay for the children even if he is not the biological father.
The right of Genital integrity
Since early childhood infant girls enjoy the freedom of genital integrity but the boys don’t. Circumcision for men is legal and is practiced regularly while females are completely protected against it. This custom is practiced without any consent and only to male children and infants. Thus women have the right to keep up their body parts while men don’t
The Right to Control and Maintain Traffic
Desperate in fighting corruption, Peru facing limited options turns to female cops. The lady officers hold the forefront in an administration push to restore trust in law implementation in a nation known for corruption. Because they are women is no occurrence: authorities trust they are less corruptible than men.
The truth behind statistics, 69% of individuals who took part in an online survey held by Peru.com concurred replacing male officers with female ones, with 29% not agreeing the move to enhance security and fight corruption.
No Arrests after Evening
Again, In India it is not allowed to arrest women after sunset according to its Supreme Court. In the past women used to be harassed by cops during wee hours. This practice made the authorities to change their laws in favor of women that say even if a lady constable is accompanying officers, cops are not allowed to arrest women at night. On the other hand, men can be arrested at any time of the day.
Many women’s rights activities resulted in reforms of women laws on global, examples include a recent lift of driving ban on women in Saudi Arabia. Women empowerment is a reality of 21st century! Now reap the results of feminist’s movement ladies!
