would you agree with the view that universal rights were beset with contradictions? explain.

Yes, it has been rightly stated that the idea of universal rights was beset with contradictions as women still didn’t have the recognition they were promised. Their rights were still ignored and they were not protected.

With no representation at the ground level, they were denied the right to liberty, property and were not honored, they still had to face inferior status in society with constant male domination.

They were referred to as passive citizens with no socio-political rights.

Slavery existed in France till the 19th century.
