Front Line, in association with the TCD One World Society, held a special event on women human rights defenders in Trinity College Dublin on Monday 6th December. This event was organised as part of the international Campaign on Women Human Rights Defenders.
The event illustrated and discussed the specific challenges facing women human rights defenders and was addressed by three women who play a highly active role in defending human rights globally. Firstly, Ms Jennifer Williams who works in Zimbabwe with WOZA (Women of Zimbabwe Arise) to empower women to protect their human rights. Secondly, Ms. Fatima Nateson Burnad who works in India with Dalit women’s resistance movements in saying no to the caste system. And thirdly, Ms. Nadya Avsievich from Belarus who works in health promotion and human rights education. Mary Lawlor, Director of Front Line, chaired the event, which took place in the Arts Block in Trinity College, in Room 3074, on Monday 6th December, commencing at 7pm.
The three women human rights defenders were in Dublin for the Department of Foreign Affairs Sixth Annual NGO Forum on Human Rights that will be held in Dublin on Saturday, 4 December 2004 in Croke Park.
