Women's Rights: Nellie McClung
& The Famous Five

Many individuals around the world suffer. Not from sickness, diseases or infections; but from not being treated equally. For not being treated like they have dignity. Like they have nothing proud to represent them. Everyday people internationally are being deprived from their human rights. Violations that occur to a human's rights leave the human feeling less human.

Why do children need rights?

There are many violations that occur to children’s rights, worldwide. There are people in this world that cannot follow these rights; they must do whatever they can to abuse them. Whether it is underground or somewhere in the middle of nowhere. It happens. Slavery and child labour are one of the most common ones. In many developing countries, families can’t pay their debt, so they end up selling their child to factories and horrendous people, so they can receive the money they need. Children get tortured daily at these factories. They are deprived of so many rights, most of them just end up committing suicide. Luckily, in countries such as Canada and the United States, these rights are used with respect and aren’t neglected from a child’s life. No matter how hard we try to make the world perfectly clear of slavery and child labour, there are still going to be places where abuse happens.

How are children's rights used & abused?
In conclusion, we think that all of us should be really grateful of the fact that here in Canada we have all our Human Rights without any of those rights being violated.
