Women Human Rights Defenders

APWLD”s work over the past 8 years to gain recognition of the specific issues facing Women Human Rights Defenders has been a successful element of our work.

The formation of the International Women Human Rights Defenders Coalition has brought greater recognition of the needs of women HRDs in the work of mainstream human rights organisations as well as governments.
