PBI-accompanied groups mobilize to commemorate International Women's Day

On March 8, 2024, PBI-accompanied groups around the world mobilized to commemorate International Women's Day, now in its 114th year. Women human rights defenders advocate and lobby for human rights within their community and are not only targeted for their activism, but also face gender-specific rights violations. At Peace Brigades International, we stand alongside these women, supporting them to continue their vital work even amidst repression and violence.
