  • Holistic Protection For Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs)

    AWID commemorated Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) who are no longer with us during the “16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign”. The goals of the commemoration are: to honor WHRDs and their work; to raise awareness regarding the increased levels of violence and repression faced by many women's rights activists around the world; and to draw attention to the need to politicize and support self-care, as well as the need to increase integral protection and safety for WHRDS. This year AWID is  putting particular emphasis on the need for integral protection. Please check-out the set of graphics that share key components of integral protection for WHRDs. Join AWID and us in sharing these graphics and bringing attention to the need to provide integral protection for WHRDs these 16 Days and every day!
