5 Human Rights Issues That Are Prevalent Today

When it comes to human rights, many countries around the world have improved. The increase in laws protecting our most vulnerable people, allowing people to vote, and allowing people to have more freedom of speech, the world is actually becoming a better place.

However, because of how big the world actually is, there are still plenty of countries that are not improving. We have chosen a few topics that are relevant today and that show how the world is changing and how it is not.

Women’s Rights

When you think of women’s rights, you may think that women have all of these rights now. However, women’s rights in the United States have not changed much over the years.

For example, in the United States, women are paid less than men for doing the same job. On average, women are paid about $0.79 for every $1.00 that a man is paid. This is known as the gender gap. Not only is this a major issue because women have to work harder for less money than men, but this is also an issue because it causes poverty.

In the United States, women are the ones who are usually taking care of the family. They are the ones who have to work the longest hours and who have to work the hardest. So, women, who are already paid less, are also the ones who are working the hardest and yet, they are the ones who are most likely to be in poverty.

For women all over the world, it is not much better. Many countries still do not have laws protecting women and many countries are not willing to protect women. For example, in Saudi Arabia, women are not allowed to drive.

In many countries, women are not allowed to marry who they want. In some countries, women are not allowed to get a job or to go to school.

So, although the world is getting better in terms of women’s rights, there is still a long way to go.

Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is an awful thing that happens all over the world. Human trafficking is when someone is forced into labor or sex work. This is a major problem because it controls people. People are being sold and forced to do something that they don’t want to do.

You may be wondering how someone can sell another person; that is a great question. The answer is that a person doesn’t actually have to sell another person. In most cases, people are tricked into working for someone.

This is a major issue not only for human rights, but for the world economy. The world economy is a lot smaller than it used to be and there is not as much money being earned. So, if people are being forced to work for less than they should, then this is a problem.

Unfortunately, human trafficking is still something that is very common around the world. In fact, it is the fastest growing crime in the world. Like many other issues, just because you may not know anyone who has been trafficked, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen.

In many countries, there are laws that are supposed to protect people from being trafficked. For example, in the United States, it is illegal to force a person to do something like this.

However, this doesn’t mean that people don’t try to trick people into doing this.

For example, you may know someone who is trying to get a visa to the United States. Maybe they want to come to the United States and work as a babysitter or a waitress. However, when they get to the United States, they are forced to work as a sex worker.

This is just one example of how human trafficking works.

But there are people fighting to end human trafficking; organisations working to support survivors and prevent future victims.

Children’s Rights

Children’s rights are an important part of human rights because they are the future. They are the people that will make our world a better place. So, we cannot only protect adults, we also have to protect children.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of children all over the world who are not being protected. For example, in the United States, there are a lot of homeless children. On any given night, there are about 1.3 million children who are homeless.

There are also a lot of children who are not being fed. In the United States, about 1 in 6 children are not getting enough to eat.

In many countries, children are not allowed to get an education. In some countries, girls as young as 7 are not allowed to go to school.

In some countries, children are being forced to work in jobs that they should not be doing. In some countries, children are forced to work in the fields. In other countries, children are forced to work in mines.

There is still a long way to go regarding the rights of children.

LGBTQ Rights

This year, the United States made a big change in terms of LGBTQ rights. In 2015, the United States Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples had a constitutional right to get married.

Although this was a major step forward for LGBTQ rights, there is still a long way to go. For example, in many countries, homosexuality is still illegal. For example, in Saudi Arabia, homosexuality is punishable by death.

In other countries, homosexuality may not be illegal, but it is still not accepted. For example, in many countries, people who are homosexual may not be allowed to hold a job.

Unfortunately, many people become targets of violence due to their sexual orientation.

Religious Freedom

When you think of the United States and human rights, the first thing that may come to your mind is freedom of religion.

The United States is a country where people are allowed to worship the way that they want. People from diverse religious backgrounds are allowed to worship freely.

However, many countries around the world do not have freedom of religion. In fact, some countries do not even allow people to practice religion.

For example, in Saudi Arabia, it is completely illegal to practice any religion other than Islam.

In China, it is illegal to practice any religion other than Chinese Buddhism.

Finally, in North Korea, it is illegal to practice any religion other than Juche.

Conclusion

It is important to note that not all countries are the same. Some countries are making great progress with human rights while other countries are not.

For example, in the United States, there is still a lot of work to do. While the United States is making great progress with LGBTQ rights, there is still a lot of work to be done. Yet, it is still legal to fire someone for being gay. So, even though the United States is a good place to be gay, there is still some work to be done.

With this in mind, we must continue to better our world. We must continue to work towards a world where everyone is equally protected.
