AWID Manual on Violence against Women Human Rights Defenders

Hi group members!

Below you will find a link to a great resource from AWID on the protection of women's human rights defenders.

This publication provides a reflection on the complex situations of women who face threats and violations as a result of their work defending human rights. It highlights the importance of looking at all the various and gender-specific types of violence that women human rights defenders will face, which goes beyond just physical violence, and includes threats and verbal harassment to women and their family members. I have also attached the file.

Dear Adriana,

Thank you for sharing this link. I wnet through the main page briefly and I found it quite beneficial. I have forwarded them to my students as well. Women need to know their  rights and that they will be protected when they voice themselves.
