Women’s rights

Women’s rights

Even today, women around the world continue to be subjected to discrimination, violence and deprivations of freedoms. Simply because of their gender, women can be deprived of their security, independence and even subjected to unjust imprisonment, torture, and execution.

HRN, working together with NGOs from around the world and especially in Asia, takes actions to end domestic violence, human trafficking, honor killing of women, military rape, and any other violence against women. HRN also works on the elimination of discriminatory and unjust punishment as well as the execution of women.
