Women’s Rights as Human Rights

The rights of women against gender-based violence are anchored on their basic human rights. When women seek to uphold and protect
their rights against violence, it is not to demand for new forms of rights. Instead, they are just rightfully pursuing the implementation of the rights which are afforded to every person. Most of these basic human rights can be found in international documents that are recognized by the community of nations.
