The Human Rights Council (HRC) is the key intergovernmental body within the United Nations system responsible for the promotion and protection of all human rights around the globe. AWID works with partners to share key knowledge, convene civil society dialogues and events, and influence negotiations and outcomes of the session.
The 2016 AWID Forum in Brazil powerfully created a space for re-imagining our feminist futures. Since 1983, the event has become an iterative process of sharpening our analyses and actions; a watershed moment that reinvigorates feminisms; and a political home for women human rights defenders to find sanctuary.
