Women Activists at Greater Risk

Women human rights activists around the world face greater risks than their male counterparts simply because of their gender. This is the conclusion of a major study carried out by the Swedish Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation in co-operation with sister organisations in Ireland and the United States.
