We must protect women human rights defenders

Internatinal Service for Human Rights (ISHR)

 

The UN recognises and protects the vital role played by human rights defenders. But there is a growing consensus that women who choose to challenge human rights abuses face particular risks and need particular protection. They can be harassed and verbally abused.  They face gender–based violence including rape. Their children and their families may be targeted. Often, they come up against entire systems of laws and cultural values designed to silence them.

 

In the past, resolutions on human rights defenders have passed in the UN General Assembly by consensus. But we are very concerned that not all countries are prepared to support this week's vote.

 

To be clear, a vote to protect women human right defenders is a vote for human rights.
