A New Resource: Nazra For Feminist Studies: Manual On Women Human Rights Defenders
The Women Human Rights Defenders program at Nazra for Feminist Studies is launching its manual on Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs). Rather than translate into Arabic manuals that have been produced by other organizations, the WHRD program opted to produce it’s a manual that is especially tailored to the Egyptian context.The manual is in Arabic but an English summary is available.
The manual includes sections on Egyptian legislation and military verdicts that are used to constrain public action; a background of the unique violations committed against WHRDs and why the situation of WHRDs should be paid special attention to; regional and international mechanisms that WHRDs can utilize to report violations committed against them; and, finally, security tips that can be of special use during perilous circumstances.
