The history of all times, and of today especially, teaches that ... women will be forgotten if they forget to think about themselves.

Resource: "Claiming Rights, Claiming Justice: A Guidebook on Women Human Rights Defenders"
| 26 September 2007


A Guidebook on Women Human Rights Defenders is aimed to help women human rights defenders name the specific risks, violations and constraints they face in their work. It presents a practical discussion of the useful mechanisms developed by the state and also the civil society to provide redress and remedy, and to protect women human rights defenders. It is intended to be used by human rights and other organisations to further a gender perspective in the monitoring and documentation of human rights.


The guidebook was produced by Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) in close collaboration with individuals and organisations that participated in the international campaign on women human rights defenders since 2005. The project is funded by Oxfam NOVIB.
