Mesoamerican Women Human Rights Defenders Demand Effective Protection and Respect

Mesoamerican Women Rights Defenders Initiative (IM-Defensoras)

With the 57th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) taking place in New York (March 4-15), IM-Defensoras send a plea to CSW to take effective measures to eradicate violence against women human rights defenders. The Mesoamerican Women Human Rights Defenders Initiative (IM-Defensoras) seeks to provide alternatives for protection, self-care, and safety to tackle the violence that defenders face, both due to their work and their gender, thus contributing to women's continuing struggle for human rights.
