We created The Forum as a platform for organizational and individual collaboration among defenders of human rights around the world, with a particular focus on the rights of women and girls. This online community provides public and private discussion to enhance collaboration, solidarity, and greater public awareness and engagement in the struggle for human rights.

 

The Forum also houses a resource library collecting important documents, websites, videos, and other media that support or shed light on human rights issues globally.

 

Finally, the Forum hosts regular live online conversations bringing together and amplifying voices of those engaged in the struggle for human rights.
