Why they are important
Every human being deserves to be treaded equally. As a society, which carries moral values, we have to ensure that every everybody is aware of his or her rights. We should behave and act in a way, that considers your counterpart as an equal being and neither a convenience nor utility. Hereunto we should not only ensure institutional and written rights, but most importantly encourage self-reflecting behaviour towards other members of the community.
