4 Civil Rights Struggles That You Need To Know

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

civil rights by I cant breathe

One of the worst examples of civil rights exploitation is police brutality. A rise has been seen in the cases of police brutality in recent years. In the movie “I am dying, I cannot breathe,” a similar story is shown. A Wall Street trader is mistakenly treated as a thief by police officers, where he is brought near to death based on doubt. He kept screaming I cant breathe ykm, but police officers did not stop beating him.

Civil rights are an essential component of every democracy. They are the guarantees and security of providing equal opportunities and rights to every individual, irrespective of race, religion, culture, or gender.

The article below discusses the top four civil rights struggles currently happening around the world.

Human Trafficking

Although slavery was abolished in the U.S in 1865, it did not disappear completely. Its effects can still be seen in the form of human trafficking.

Human trafficking is defined as the illegal movement of people from one country to another for the purpose of forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation.

Police Brutality

Police brutality is one of the most prominent examples of human rights exploitation. However, most police officers aim to pursue peace and harmony, and some extremist police personnel disrepute the department. Examples of such incidents can be seen in the recent past when police killed many unarmed black Americans.

Disability Discrimination in the Workplace

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects the right of people with mental and physical disabilities. It includes wheelchair ramps, automatic doors, and parking spaces at the workplace for people with disabilities.

Pregnancy Discrimination

 In 1978, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act was passed. It regulates the rights of pregnant women at work. It allows for pregnancy-related sick leave and demands that a pregnant woman be treated the same way as a person with a temporary disability. Moreover, an employer can not refuse to hire a woman — the reason being the pregnancy.

Ending Notes
