Protection in practice for women human rights defenders - CSW59 Side Event
9 Mar 2015 -  The first ever UN resolution on the protection of women human rights defenders (WHRDs) was passed by the UN General Assembly in December 2013. Since the adoption of the resolution, there have been many initiatives, including at national and regional level, to ensure its practical implementation in support of WHRDs. This event will provide an opportunity to reflect on these initiatives, discuss challenges to, and good practice regarding protection mechanisms and other measures to create an enabling environment for defenders all around the world.
