Our Right To Safety: Women Human Rights Defenders Holistic Approach to Protection

Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) are women active in human rights defence who are targeted for who they are - because they are women as well as for what they do - because of their work defending human rights.

These factors include class, religion, age, language, sexual orientation, location, race and ethnicity.
