Women's human rights online & the Universal Periodic Review - new GenderIT.org edition is out!

irhrlogo_201106.png

From 21 May to 4 June 2012, the second cycle of the Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review (UPR) will begin at the UN Office in Geneva. The UPR is a unique mechanism for states to tell other countries what they have achieved in promoting human rights – but also for non-state actors to raise issues of concern in a non-confrontational fashion.

This edition of GenderIT.org will allow you to learn more about the current discussions about women's human rights on the internet, with a particular focus on the country reports for Brazil, Ecuador, India, the Philippines, and South Africa for the UPR process made by APC and their partners. These reports raise for the first time internet-related women's human rights issues as part of the UPR.

In the edition, we ask three women human rights defenders and co-authors of the country reports for Brazil, Ecuador, and the Philippines about the importance of the UPR for the rights and daily lives of women, the trends in exercising women’s and sexual rights online, and their tips on how women’s and sexual rights activists can support their advocacy through the UPR process.
