Women’s Human Rights

UPDATE – November 2017

  • The Women’s Action Network are putting together a plan for Sixteen Days of Action Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign running from 25th November to 10th December 2017. More information to follow.
  • In El Salvador, there is a total ban on abortion. Women and girls are dying and suffering long prison sentences because of this. Evelyn, a teenage rape victim has just started a thirty year long prison sentence in jail after a miscarriage. For the first time in years, Salvadorian lawyers will soon debate changes to this law. You can call on them to support reformed laws by signing the online petition which is to be found on the Amnesty website here.
  • Due to recent events, the case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is now getting the long-awaited media coverage it deserves. Please add your voice to those calling for her immediate release from an Iranian prison so that she can receive the urgent medical care she needs and can be reunited with her three year old daughter and husband. Please sign the online petition on the Amnesty website and then spread the word. Thank you.
