Violence Against WHRDs in Mesoamerica, 2012-2014 Report

By: 
Mesoamerican Women Human Rights Defenders Initiative
Drawing on data collected by the Mesoamerican Registry of Attacks on Women Human Rights Defenders through the Regional Monitoring and Information System, this report provides updated information regarding attacks on WHRDs in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico from 2012-2014, and includes a separate chapter on the situation in Nicaragua. This is the second such report produced by IM-Defensoras, the first was in 2012 during the first year of documentation on the situation for WHRDs in the region. This report recognizes the tireless efforts of Mesoamerican women, who, in the face of discrimination and violence, continue to defend the rights they have won, broadening and deepening democracy and “buen vivir” (living well) throughout the region. The Mesoamerican Initaitive is a partnership between JASS, UDEFEGUA, la Colectiva Feminista, AWID, Consorcio Oaxaca, and Fondo Centroamericano de Mujeres.
