Global Report on the situation of Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) by WHRD-IC

Coming at a time when WHRDs have received little attention in the human rights arena, the Global Report on the Situation of WHRDs plays a crucial part in advancing the recognition of WHRDs. The Global Report gives a contextual analysis of the environment in which WHRDs work and the violations they face because of their gender and/or work defending gender-based rights. It is intended that the Global Report is primarily an advocacy and capacity building tool, both important measures for WHRDs’ protection and the prevention of further abuses. It is a contribution to the ongoing documentation of the situation of WHRDs that will enable informed advocacy from the local to regional and international level. The Global Report is a publication of the Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition (WHRD-IC).
