International Women's Day And Human Rights Violations Against Women Human Rights Defenders

EDM number 1208 in 2015-16, proposed by Ann Clwyd on 07/03/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Equality, Human rights and Sex discrimination.

That this House commends the vital work of Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) in light of International Women's Day and more generally; is very concerned about serious and systemic violence against WHRDs around the world, such as the recent murder of WHRD Berta Cáceres in Honduras; is appalled by such heinous crimes, which are often specifically gender-targeted; notes the importance of continuing to fight against impunity for those who commit such crimes, whether the alleged perpetrators are state officials or private individuals; and calls on the Government, along with the international community, to strengthen efforts to work with the UN, (I)NGOs, such as Peace Brigades International, and EU and UK embassies, towards the adoption of appropriate measures to protect and support WHRDs.

This motion has been signed by a total of 37 MPs.
