The theory in Human Rights, What Are They Really? expounds on the principle that all people have the same fundamental rights. Therefore, there are no rights of Group X that are more than or different from those of anyone else. The only proper context for “Group X Rights” is if some fundamental rights of Group X have been neglected in law or the enforcement of law. Possibly some or many people do not understand this distinction; therefore talk of women’s rights, worker’s rights, etc., tends to be confusing and counterproductive.
