Global Report on the Situation of Women Human Rights Defenders

The WHRD IC is a resource and advocacy network for the protection and support of women human rights defenders (WHRDs) worldwide. 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 women’s rights and sexual rights. The Global Report uses 43 case studies that illuminate specific trends and experiences of WHRDs.
