Raising Women’s Voices: Recommendations for the European Commission & United Nations

We, the members of the Count Me In! Consortium (CMI!), applaud the European Commission’s investment of EUR 500 Million to the United Nations for women’s rights and ending violence against women.

In solidarity with those arrested in Turkey, we call for their immediate release.

The WHRD IC is deeply concerned about the recent detention of eight Turkish human rights defenders and two IT trainers and calls for their immediate and unconditional release. Among those who were detained from a human rights workshop are prominent members of the women’s rights movement, which is a clear attempt to destabilize and demoralize women who engage in legitimate and important activism to defend and promote human rights.
