    Okay I feel like it's on the tip of my tongue, but I can't seem to grab it

    Okay so my (half my sentence) is: women are denied access these (word that I'm looking for) rights.

    The rights are leisure, education, news etc.

    What is a word to describe these rights?

    Do I even make sense? oh my gosh it's late

    What I'm trying to say is that they are denied access to something that should be available to them. I need a word for it

    I don't like the word fundamental, some of the early pioneer work done by American president FDR described 'freedom of want' as one of Four Freedoms in the modern world, in UN documents they're usually refered to as economic, social and cultural rights.

    I know it's been used before but i'm just not a fan of it, using the phrase above is as historically valid and nicer to read.

    This was drafted in 2000, acceded to in 2009, by the EU. It's by no means historical.

    I get why you would say that. Why use three words when you can use one? I just prefer the simpler and clearer looking words, fundamental is just a really robotic word tbh.

    It would be sexier if they added "inviolable economic, social and cultural rights".
