    Problem in comparative sentences.

    Like men,women have every right to enjoy their life.

    Women have as much right to enjoy their life as men have.

    Are both the above written sentence correct?If not please correct them.

    Please note the amendments I have made to your post. It's important to put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Both your sentences are correct. Note that you will also see "Women have as much right to enjoy their life as men do​".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Because you are talking about multiple people, I would use "lives" instead of "life".

    I agree. I had glossed over the word "their" completely (even though I correctly typed it into my sentence) so I based mine on "Women have as much right to enjoy life as men [have/do]".
