1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: On 16 Days of Activism - Center for Women's Global Leadership, Rutgers – The State University of New Jersey
---------------------------------------------------------------------

"Everyone has the right, individually and in association with others, to promote and to strive for the protection and realization of human rights and fundamental freedoms at the national and international levels." Declaration on the Right and Responsibility of Individuals, Groups and Organs of Society to Promote and Protect Universally Recognized Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms ["The Declaration on human rights defenders"] (Article 1).

On the occasion of November 29th , Women Human Rights Defenders day, and as a part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign, the Center for Women's Global Leadership honors the hundreds of thousands of women activists around the world who persistently and courageously defend human rights, peace and social justice. Women from all parts of the globe engage in defense of human rights on a daily basis. Because of their advocacy, they face retribution and are sometimes punished-by government officials, religious authorities, police, and often by family and community members.

Whether they focus on women's human rights or other rights issues, women defenders are subjected to arbitrary imprisonment, torture, forced disappearances, death threats, violations of privacy, sexual violence, name calling and other threats to their credibility, closures of their organizations and a host of other violations because of their activism and claims to exercise rights. Many women defenders have lost their lives because of their advocacy.

In 2007, women activists around the globe face continued restrictions on their advocacy and many forms of violations, such as: In Pakistan, under the current state of emergency, many women activists and lawyers have been arrested:, prominent women's rights activists such as UN Special Rapporteur Asma Jahangir were placed under house arrest or threatened with arrest, as was UN Special Representative on human rights defenders, Hina Jilani, who was abroad when the warrant was issued;• In Mexico, Lydia Cacho, a journalist and head of a women's organization, faced an assassination attempt in May, after having endured a previous arrest and sustained persecution by government authorities because of her work exposing gender based violence; In South Africa, a number of Black lesbians known to be feminist activists were killed in a spate of "hate crimes; " In Iran, over 30 women demonstrating peacefully were arrested as they protested state pressure against women human rights defenders; In the United States, sexual and reproductive rights advocates face physical assault and their organizations and continue to forfeit government financial support if they refuse to sign the federal "anti-prostitution pledge;" In Poland, defenders working for sexual and reproductive rights, and especially the right
to safe abortion, continue to face persistent threats, harassment and questioning from law enforcement officials; And only last week in Nicaragua, nine prominent women activists were charged with fabricated crimes by the government in collusion with right wing groups in an effort to intimidate feminists who have advocated for women's rights related to abortion and against incest and other forms of sexual violence.

CWGL stands in solidarity with these and other women defenders and with all activists who have defended women's rights during 2007."

---------------------------------------------------------------------

"Every day, in all corners of the world, countless women and girls are killed, mutilated, beaten, raped, sold into sexual slavery or tortured. Most of the survivors of this violence have little hope of seeing their tormentors pay for their crimes. And so the violence goes on..."

4. NEW! Resource of Interest: The Gender and Water Alliance (GWA)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The Gender and Water Alliance (GWA) was established at the Second World Water Forum (WWF) in March 2000. The mission of GWA is to promote women's and men's equitable access to and management of safe and adequate water, for domestic supply, sanitation, food security and environmental sustainability. The provision of sustainable water and sanitation services that incorporate an integrated water resources management approach requires a special emphasis and focus on gender, social justice and human rights. GWA believes that equitable access to and control over water is a basic right for all, as well as a critical factor in promoting poverty eradication and sustainability. GWA is a global network dedicated to mainstream gender in water resoures management. It is registred as an Association under Dutch law and has more than 600 members in 91 countries worldwide. Its membership is diverse and represents a wide range of capacities and expertise across all water sectors as well as from different stakeholder groups including government, grassroots organisations, NGOs, universities and research institutes, international agencies and individual consultants. More than eighty percent of the membership comes from a diversity of countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The GWA is managed by an independent Steering Committee that is elected by the membership every two to three years. The Steering Committee is made up of ten members representing different regions and areas of gender expertise in the water sector. The Secretariat of the GWA is supported by an Executive Director, a Programme Officer, an Administrative Financial Officer and an Environmental Officer. The office is in Dieren, the Netherlands. GWA is an Associated Programme of the Global Water Partnership (GWP). The Alliance is and has been financed by the governments of the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, additional earmarked finance has been generated by projects implemented with partner organisations.
