Round 1 may be used by Pro to argue. If that happens, Pro must leave round 5 blank to keep things even. Arguing in Round 1 is recommended since burden of proof is on pro. No new arguments in round 5.

Right: "A legal entitlement to have or do something."

Woman do not have fewer rights than men because when you look at maternity leave rights across the world (especially in America) woman are entitled to take longer (for months) breaks whereas men are only given about a week for maternity leave. In addition, woman can also get paid maternity leave in many areas of the world whereas men do not in England for example.

Pro, you've picked the wrong side. I am arguing that women don't have fewer rights than men, you are meant to argue the opposite. Please read the debate before you accept because now this debate is pointless.

I'm thinking about western countries. USA, England, Western Europe, etc.
Since this is an American website and many users seem to be American,I think it would be a good idea to look at the specific issue of the US.

Globally or within a certain country? (Please clarify)

Do you mean like globally, or in some parts of the world of chosen?
Like in Northen countries women are exactly like men when it comes to rights... not debatable.
Let's talk Uganda in the other hand.
