“Women’s rights are human rights”

"Women’s rights are human rights” is a women’s rights slogan that has been printed on many images.


Wikipedia: Women’s rights are human rights
“Women’s rights are human rights” is a phrase used in the feminist movement. The phrase was first used in the 1980s and early 1990s. Its most prominent usage is as the name of a speech given by Hillary Rodham Clinton, the First Lady of the United States, on 5 September 1995, at the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing. In this speech she sought to closely link the notion of women’s rights with that of human rights. In the speech, Clinton used the phrase within the longer, bidirectional refrain, “human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights.

The phrase “Women’s rights are human rights” was used intermittently during the 1980s and first half of the 1990s, before Clinton’s speech. Instances include in 1984, when The New York Times quoted the head of New York City’s Human Rights Commission, Marcella Maxwell, using this phrase in conversation.[4] It was again used in 1985 by Cecilia Medina, a noted Chilean jurist, in a seminal paper on feminism. The title of her work was ‘Women’s Rights as Human Rights: Latin American Countries and the Organization of American States (OAS).’ In articulating the historic idea, Medina wrote, “As a logical consequence of the fact that women’s rights are human rights, feminism, in theory, is a movement to achieve a democratic society, without which human rights may not be fully enjoyed.”
