Please contribute to AWID’s Tribute to Women Human Rights Defenders!

September 12, 2015


As part of this year’s 16-Days Campaign Against Gender Based Violence (November 25 – December 10 2015), join AWID in commemorating the women human rights defenders (WHRDs) who have died in the last 12 months and help us celebrate their lives and contributions to the defense of human rights.

AWID’s Tribute to Women Human Rights Defenders Who Are No Longer With Us is an online photo exhibition featuring photographs and biographies of women’s rights leaders from around the world – honors WHRDs who have died and whose contributions to the advancement of human rights are very much missed.

While many of these women have passed away due to accidents, illnesses and natural disasters, about one third of those honored in the tribute were killed or disappeared due to their activism.

For the submission guidelines follow the link: Call for Submissions: Contribute to AWID’s Tribute to Women Human Rights Defenders! | AWID and send your contribution to with the subject line “AWID Tribute 2015” by 30 September, 2015.
