respect for rights and freedom both international and locally. Almost every state has the
declaration because it provides a minimum set of human treatment standards.
The comparison between the Declaration of human rights and the United States rights
The civil rights movements in the United States was a mass movement that was meant to
secure the African Americans right of equal opportunities and access to basic rights and
privileges of the U.S citizenship. It also influenced the power of women and student movement
in the 1960’s (Calz 450). Primarily, the civil right movement addressed the areas of education,
discrimination, voting rights and segregation. Following the World War 11, the African
Americans had the right to vote but faced stiff resistance from the local whites (Calz 461). As
compared to the Universal Declaration of Human rights, both movements focus on the right of
women and men regarding nationality, race, and religion. Without limitations, the actions entitle
the right of education with the aim of developing the human personality as well as strengthening
the fundamental and human right freedom.
As stated in the Declaration of the human rights, everyone is subjected to a limited law to
meet their purpose of recognition and respect for the freedom and rights of achieving the
requirements of public order, morality and the general welfare of people in the societies. When
we look at the civil movement, the non-whites were denied their fundamental rights, so the
abolition of the slave was purposed to give everyone the right to vote. In return, this would
facilitate the freedom of doing things because of the laws that would be enacted. The U.N human
declaration in this case also exercised the right of liberty contrary to the principles and purpose
of the world’s requirements (“The U.N declaration”).
