For Human Rights Day, We Honor Inspiring Women
women continue the work Eleanor has started, pushing for human rights to become truly universal. In commemoration of Human Rights Day on December 10, Human Rights First honors four inspiring women defenders who have labored courageously to push boundaries for the protection of human rights. From Shehrbano Taseer’s committed efforts to fight extremism in Pakistan, Viktória Mohácsi’s multi-decade-long fight for Roma Rights, and to the revolutionary work of Esraa Abdel Fattah in Egypt and Jaleela Al-Salman in Bahrain to democratize their countries—all four demonstrate passion and commitment to human rights. For Human Rights Day, we invite you to check out their stories. Join us on Facebook and share your stories of inspiring women.
