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.
