Women Crossing the Line

Act Now

Gladys Lanza Ochoa is a feminist human rights defender and the Coordinator of the Movement of Women for Peace “Visitación Padilla” in Honduras. On March 26, 2015, she was arrested and sentenced to 18 months in prison on charges of defamation and slander against the Director of the Social, Urban and Rural Housing Development Foundation (FUNDEVI) for supporting a FUNDEVI employee that accused him of sexual harassment. This puts her organization at risk and weakens Honduran women’s access to justice. Help raise awareness and build global pressure for her release by posting this placard on social media.
