Women in Honduras Fighting for Justice

Since June 28, 2009 --the day of the coup against Honduran President Mel Zelaya-- a group of women called "Feminists in Resistance" have been fighting for justice. After the coup, Honduran women were raped, incarcerated and killed, and as Human Rights Watch reported last December,"No one has been held criminally responsible for any of these violations."

Thank you

Dear Silvia,

Thank you for sharing this urgent issue.I invite you to raise your voice with the PulseWire Community by writing a letter to UN Women Executive Director Michelle Bachelet outlining your recommendation for how this new UN agency can truly affect change on the ground to promote gender equality and uphold the rights and needs of women both on a local and global scale. What should their priorities be? What are the real issues you and women in your community face on the ground? What is your hope for what UN Women can accomplish in the coming years?
