#DearDefendHer: We stand with you
Since the launch of our DefendHer campaign, more than 2,000 people have signed on in support of brave women human rights defenders around the world. From Indonesia to Ireland, New Zealand to Zambia, Mexico to Malaysia, women and men from every corner of the world are showing their solidarity with courageous women activists who protect our rights and our freedoms.
Women human rights defenders show incredible resilience in the face of threats, yet they often lack recognition for their work. Every day, women’s movements face new risks. Women human rights defenders experience great opposition and growing conservatism, often facing harassment and threats, as well as threats to their families and loved ones. These activists tell us that international solidarity and support is crucial to sustaining their work.
Show women human rights defenders around the world that you stand with them as they defend our rights by signing our #DearDefendHer solidarity statement!
