About this event
Mark your calendar to join the launch session “Defend her! Women Human Rights Defenders’ Recommendations for Diplomatic Missions” on Wednesday October 27th 9.00-10.30 EDT/ 15.00-16.30 CEST.
Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) will present their key recommendations for diplomatic missions to better protect their critical work in a gender responsive and transformative manner. This event will highlight the specific protection needs that WHRDs have on 3 key areas:
- How can diplomatic missions support individual WHRDs’ physical, mental, and economic safety?
- How can diplomatic missions strengthen women’s rights organizations’ operational space and their resilience?
- How can diplomatic missions enhance the understanding of, familiarization with, and support for a diversity of women’s voices within the mission?
Mission leads, staff and policy makers will gain insight in the gap between policy, protocols and practice. From WHRDs first hand, they will receive concrete ideas on how to bridge that gap and how to continue meaningful engagement with WHRDs.
Co-hosted by WO=MEN Dutch Gender Platform, Cordaid, Peace Brigades International and the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
