DEFENDHERS: WOMEN HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS STANDING TOGETHER FOR JUSTICE 

Around the world, brave women are working tirelessly to defend the freedoms and rights of women in their communities, their countries, and beyond. Their courage is extraordinary. Their work is crucial. And yet many of us have never heard their stories.

Help us change that: explore #DefendHer, presented by Global Fund for Women, JASS (Just Associates), and MADRE . Meet 14 incredible women human rights defenders and women-led groups around the world working to end violence against women; advance LGBTQI rights; protect the planet and the rights of indigenous communities; and more issues at the intersections of women's human rights and the challenges communities are facing every day.

The risks these women face come in many forms, including harassment, smear campaigns, and physical violence—not only to them, but to their families too. Yet they refuse to stop because they know that human rights must be protected and respected. They know the fight for equality comes with a price. Check out the campaign to learn more about their struggles and what you can do to get involved!
