Women's rights

Around the world women human rights defenders face threats and risks for their work to challenge discrimination, patriarchy and entrenched privilege. ISHR stands with them in this work, providing intensive training and advocacy support, lobbying to ensure that the role and protection needs of women human rights defenders are reflected in international resolutions and standards, and working with women’s rights activists and groups to promote the effective implementation of these resolutions and standards on the ground.
