Women & Rights

Rights: Introduction

Historically, one of the biggest reasons for activism has always been women’s rights. Ranging from the protofeminist works of Mary Woolstonecraft and Virginia Woolf, to the Suffragette movement post-WWI, to more recent waves of human rights campaigns, women have long struggled to receive the same rights and benefits as men.

While rights like the women’s vote and women owning property have been achieved, it’s important to remember that many issues still remain, especially in an emerging modern world which recognises more and more problems in society, and that activism, therefore, is still just as vital and subversive for women as it was in the 1800s
