Urgent Responses For Women Human Rights Defenders At Risk: Mapping And Preliminary Assessment

By Inmaculada Barcia, AWID Consultant and Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition

AWID and the Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition reviewed a broad range of urgent responses available to Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) at risk around the world. This report describes the types of resources and strategies available to respond to urgent situations of violence against WHRDs as well as some of the organizations that offer them.

This publication is part of a new series that AWID is producing with the WHRD International Coalition. The aims of the WHRD series are to increase awareness of resources that exist to support and defend WHRDs and to ensure that women’s rights activists around the world have the necessary information to easily access these resources.
