Women and Men are Equal: Why Equal Rights Matter

Download low-data version here

As a woman, what do you think your rights over your body are? Do you think that you should look a certain way? Do you believe that what you do with your body is your choice, or someone else’s? Maybe you feel that your body is an object for men, or an object for bearing children. If you believe, think or feel any of those things, it is important that you keep reading: what you wish to do with your body is your choice. This is the message that I would like you to remember above any other.
When men and women are in a relationship together, it should be loving, caring and respectful. Both partners are equal. Everlasting love should be respectful love. Both partners have an equal say in how the relationship works. It is usual for couples to argue and to disagree, but one thing that should not be in dispute is the right of a woman to say no to a man if she does not want to do something. Sex can be an important part of a relationship. However, even if a man is your boyfriend or your husband, if you do not want to have sex with him, he does not have the right to force you to do so. It is a crime in many countries around the world, such as France, England and America, to force a woman to have any kind of sexual contact with a man. It is a crime to for a husband to force his wife to have sex with him. If these women have the right to say no, so do you.
Likewise, women do not have to have children just because their boyfriend or husband wants them to. If you do not want to have a child, you should not feel bad or guilty. It is perfectly normal not to want a child or more children, and no man should make you feel forced into having his child. This is your choice. It is also your choice if you want to keep a child. Your partner cannot force you to get rid of the unborn child as the child belongs to both of you, not just to the father. Discussing contraception is part of an equal relationship, as this can help plan when you do want to have children together. However, contraception should always be your choice. You should never be forced into taking contraception if you do not want to.
Women and men are also equal in the way our bodies appear naturally. Men do not modify or change their appearances with diets, makeup or surgery. Women are not less perfect naturally because we are women. It is your choice if you want to dress a certain way or to style your hair a certain way, not anyone else’s. Women are not less important because they are able to have children, or because they have breasts. It is not acceptable to treat a woman differently or to be violent towards a woman because of the fact that she is not a man. For example, in an equal relationship between a man and a woman, it isn’t right for a man to hit the woman. In an equal relationship it isn’t right to make the woman stay at home all day cleaning or cooking. You have the right to say no, and if a man wants to physically punish a woman for this, this is also wrong. Like forcing a woman into sex, if a man is physically violent towards you because you are a woman, in many countries this is illegal.
Countries that help women towards equality are richer, not just economically, but because women are supported through all stages of their life. As a woman, you are many things over your life. You are a child, a schoolgirl, a mother, a wife, but also a friend, a neighbor and valuable member of your community. Living as an equal is the most important step towards being all of these things.
