This initiative supports the enhancement of gender equality human rights programming within the Guatemala Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Women and girls are subject to some of the cruelest human rights violations and yet many organizations specialized in human rights promotion and protection are not prepared to deal with these gender-specific crimes. Project activities include: (1) supporting policy development for and direct accompaniment of women human rights defenders; (2) supporting victims of sexual and gender-based violence; (3) denouncing discrimination especially related to women’s economic, social and cultural rights; and (4) strengthening gender-sensitive justice systems through strategic litigation.
