The right not to be a parent
Women in most nations have the right to choose not to be a parent. This right exists through the option to have an abortion and through the use of adoption, which is something many jurisdictions allow the mother to do against the wishes of the father.
The right to genital integrity
In most nations today women gain the right to genital integrity at birth. In an increasing number of nations this right is actively enforced for girls. Boys eventually gain this right too but the exact age at which this occurs isn't clear. We do know that boys in the United States still do not have this right at the age of five.
The right to protection from gender vilification
In an increasing number of nations it is illegal to vilify someone on the basis of their gender. This right is not normally enforced for men.
The right to know he is the biological parent at birth
Women have always known that they are the mother of the child they just gave birth to. Only recently have men had the chance to truly know that they are the parent of a particular newborn. In some countries, such as France, paternity testing is illegal unless permitted by a court of law.
Mandatory paternity testing at birth would give to men a right that women have always enjoyed.
The right to not be used for forced or compulsory labour
International law permits an occupying power to use men for labour against their will. The use of women for compulsory labour is always illegal in international law.
The right to be protected from common assault
Women who commit minor acts of assault against men are rarely if ever punished, and they are often applauded. Women who commit serious assaults against men are sometimes punished as the results are often so egregious that even law enforcement can't ignore it.
Men who commit minor acts of assault against women are punished as a matter of course.
The right to presumption of innocence
While this right exists for men de jure it often does not de facto.
