Women Defenders Develop Curriculum


Mesoamerican women activists are uniting and mobilizing to better confront the violence they face as a result of mounting insecurity, continuous violence against human rights defenders and the growing influence of drug cartels, gangs and organized crime on women in the region, As part of their strategy, more than 30 women human rights defenders from six countries participated in an innovative training process in Nicaragua in September designed by and for women defenders. The curriculum focuses on mechanisms and processes that promote the protection, security and self-care of the women activists and their families.
