Our rights, our safety: Resources for women human rights defenders

This new manual celebrates the different faces of human rights work and builds on the crucial contributions of women to the international human rights system. It serves as a tool to help people reflect on how defending human rights can affect women’s security and well-being and why it is important to develop both individual and collective protection measures. Finally, it helps people bridge the gap between international mechanisms and grassroots communities, and create more effective strategies. It explains how women activists can use protective instruments such as the UN Declaration on human rights defenders in their daily activities.
