The resources are dealing with human rights

Human Rights

Human Rights are the rights of humans that are enshrined within them by their very birth. Transgenders have been exploited and victimized due to the age-old practices of law and society. For social and legal setups for years together there has been recognition of two genders, males and females only. This led them to be either ostracised or be given limited educational and working preferences. However, the recent change in laws has led them to have a decent living and livelihood

However, in recent times they have been given due recognition and we have transgenders at important positions in the society.
