Freedom from Fear

Everyone in the world has the right to live without fear of violence and war. Yet for so many, it is a daily reality.

 

 

 


Freedom of Expression

Throughout the world, many people face violence and imprisonment as a result of exercising their right to freedom of expression. Everyone should have the right to educate themselves through receiving or sharing information and ideas without fear of persecution.

 


Gender Equality

According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights all people are born equal regardless of gender, race, religion or age. However women, the world over, experience violations of their human rights ranging from subtle discrimination in some countries to being treated as second-class citizens in others.

 


Child Rights

Around the world, there are children who are denied their human rights. They are forced to work without hope of an education, they are forced to be child soldiers, or they are abandoned and left to make a life for themselves on the streets.
