Human Rights Defenders, women defenders in particular, are under attack in many parts of the world, primarily due to their daily work in advocating for human rights.

With the rise of the digital technologies, they are exposed to new online threats, such as online sexual and gender-based violence, smear campaigns, harassment and surveillance.

The event will feature representatives from the EU, the US and the OHCHR as well as prominent women human rights defenders. It will highlight threats faced by women defenders online, best practices, and recommendations for governments to counter these threats.

Tuesday, 29 March 2022, 6am-7am PT (9am-10am ET; 15:00-16:00 Central European Time/CET)
