International Women’s Day 2018: Spotlight on WHRDs

Feature Episode 2 of Rights on the Line, a podcast I created and produced for Irish human rights NGO Front Line Defenders.

For International Women’s Day, we’re handing the mic over to a few of many WHRDs who work every day of the year for their own rights and the rights of their communities. Tune in to hear these WHRDs speak about their work as human rights defenders:

Sindy Joyce #Ireland #IndigenousRights
Tasneem Ahmed Taha Zaki #Sudan #WomensRights

Today is #InternationalWomensDay but these women are advocating for human rights all year round. Listen to hear about their work and the human rights violation their communitites are facing.
