Supporting Women Human Rights Defenders

ICAN supports women human rights defenders (WHRDs) by:

  1. Providing resources to organize regionally,
  2. Amplifying WHRDs’ messages through targeted advocacy at the UN, EU and other organizations;
  3. Providing access for WHRDs to policy-makers; and
  4. Facilitating individualized assistance to human rights defenders in insecure situations.

It is imperative that, if threatened, WRHDs receive support. They are the backbone of civil society and yet are directly targeted.
