Launching the #SheDefends campaign

The Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition (WHRD) coalition in MENA launches the #SheDefends campaign at a time when darkness is falling in the region. We are experiencing an upsurge of violence against women, specifically, against those who are working in the public space, suffering from simmering and bloodiest conflicts, an unprecedented emergence of non-state religious organizations,  in addition to  the closure of the public space, the imposition of restrictions on public freedoms and civil society organizations,  the rejection of human rights discourse by the majority of the state institutions.

 Subsequently, our campaign aims at highlighting the activities of WHRDs in the region, the issues they are working on, the violations they are facing.  Also, it aims at introducing them, calling upon relevant national, regional and international actors and interested people to support and protect WHRDs in the region, manifesting more solidarity with them.

WHRDs in MENA are working on highly varied and important cases related to Human Rights
