Solidarity: How to contribute to our quilt for women human rights defenders


Today marks International Women Human Rights Defenders' (WHRD) Day. Human rights defenders face frequent violence, which tends to escalate if they are LGBTQI and/or women because of the multiple discriminations that they already face. WHRDs fight to defend our human rights, but they need our solidarity and support.
