Reference tool for women human rights defenders

November, 2010
AWID / WHRD Coalition


The Association for Women In Development (AWID) has compiled a useful reference tool for women human rights defenders, in collaboration with the Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition.

The compilation lists research materials dealing with the security and protection of defenders, resources that women activists can consult concerning their wellbeing and self-care, manuals dealing with how to document and monitor violations of women’s rights, as well as manuals on the rights and mechanisms available to women human rights defenders at risk.
