Civil Rights

Civil rights are one sub-set of human rights that exist equal to and interdependent with political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and sexual rights.

There is a common misconception in the United States that only civil and political rights are relevant domestically and that “human rights” are a matter of foreign policy. However, without the full realization of people’s social, cultural, economic, sexual, and environmental rights, the enjoyment of civil and political rights remedies only a portion of the inequality and injustice that exists in our society. Just as all forms of oppression and discrimination are intersectional and interdependent, all rights are as well.

“Freedom is perhaps both one of the highest human aspirations and the foundation of all human rights, the cornerstone for all our civil liberties. It is both source and prerequisite for much, if not all, that motivates human beings.”

-Barnaby B. Barratt, Why Sexual Freedom is a Fundamental Human Right, An Introduction to Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance’s State of Sexual Freedom Report.
