Over  the  last  few  years  we  have  witnessed  a  rise  in  violence  against  WHRDs  in  the  MENA  region.  2020  was  an  especially  violent   year,  where  in  some  instances,  WHRDs  received  death  threats  and  tragically,  in  several  cases, such  as in  Iraq  and  Libya, WHRDs  were  killed.

FEMENA is pleased to endorse an important statement prepared by the Observatory on the Universality of Rights, which stresses the critical role of UN Special Procedures upholding and strengthening human rights standards and norms within the United Nations (UN) human rights system and calls for supporting this critical rights mechanism, which is under attack.

FEMENA supports Woman Human Rights Defenders, their organizations and feminist movements through analysis of trends and policy, documentation, fostering development of regional communities of practice and advocacy.

For the 16 Days of Activism Against Violence against Women (Nov. 25-Dec. 10, 2020), FEMENA, along with other regional and international women and human rights organizations, implemented a Campaign to “Protect and Support WHRDs in MENA.”

For over 25 years, Azza Soliman has tirelessly stood by the victims of torture and arbitrary detention in Egypt. She is once again targeted by state media smear campaigns and baseless attacks aiming to discredit and undermine her efforts. https://t.co/9pcLmR0yN8 FemenaNet photo

On February 15, 2021, Istanbul's 23rd High Criminal Court handed down a sentence of six years and nine months to Eren Keskin, a prominent human rights lawyer and WHRD. She was charged with “membership in an armed terrorist organization.”

Eren Keskin is a prominent human rights defender, lawyer, and the Co-Chair of the Human Rights Association in Turkey. She is also the founder of the Legal Aid Bureau Against Sexual Harassment and Rape in Custody in Turkey.

Eren has been arrested multiple times for her effort to uphold freedom of expression and her peaceful and legitimate fight to promote human rights in Turkey. The court initially sentenced her to 7.5 years because of an article published in the newspaper she co-edits. She has also been targeted by the pro-government smear campaigns on social media.

FEMENA condemns the ruling against Eren Keskin and calls on the government of Turkey to immediately drop all charges against her. Turkey must end its persecution of WHRDs. #supprtEHRDs #erenkeskin #turkey
