Women’s Rights are Human Rights: A Celebration of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
December 10th honors the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption and proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Declaration sets forth the fundamental freedoms and alienable rights that every person has. It is essential for all us to educate ourselves about our rights; as Eleanor Roosevelt said, "the destiny of human rights is in the hands of all our citizens in all our communities."
Hillary Clinton declared at the United Nations’ Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China on September 5, 1995: “I believe that, on the eve of a new millennium, it is time to break our silence. It is time for us to say here in Beijing, and the world to hear, that it is no longer acceptable to discuss women's rights as separate from human rights.”
This program focuses on different aspects of women’s rights, from childhood to adulthood. What do Women’s rights mean to you?
Join us this week as we discuss Women’s Rights in the spirit of Celebrating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was declared on December 10th, 1948.
