Violence against Women

WISE aim to address issues of marginalization, gender discrimination and violation of human rights among rural and indigenous women, using the government’s obligation to implement the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) as a basis for these women to demand accountability of the government to realize their human rights. The component on rural and indigenous women will conduct: (1) baseline research and bench-marking of CEDAW implementation as it relates to rural and indigenous women, (2) advocacy for adoption of gender-responsive policies, programs, structures and other measures for rural and indigenous women, and (3) capacity-building of rural and indigenous women’s groups and other stakeholders in the fulfillment of women’s human rights.
