Women’s rights are human rights, and women’s rights workers need better data to do their important work.
The Human Rights Measurement Initiative is now seeking funding to create a specialist set of women’s rights metrics, to give human rights defenders a powerful new tool to push for change and hold governments to account.
Here’s a short video introduction to our plans, featuring four human rights defenders who participated at our Johannesburg co-design workshop: human rights lawyer Itumeleng Shale from Lesotho, Mbali Dlamani from COSPE-Swaziland in Eswatini, Seif Magango from Amnesty International Eastern Africa, and Birgit Kainz-Labbé from the United Nations OHCHR.
