The National Network of Women Human Rights Defenders of Honduras is a space for women human rights defenders who seek protection and resources for self-care. It’s a space where women human rights defenders can express their needs in the face of a national context that systematically violates their rights. In an interview, a member of the Network states: “We think that it’s a time when we should re-think political activism and the way we defend human rights, and stand up for more human practices; to stop thinking that we’re “heroes” or “brave women” and re-imagine ourselves as women who are doing what we have to do, in the time we’re allotted. In Honduras, and all of Latin America, we’re facing a historic moment in which social movements are finding other ways to see their struggles, and we, the Network of Women Human Rights Defenders, are part of that re-imagining.
In 2013 COMPPA will be collaborating with the Network of Women Human Rights Defenders to launch their radio, La Red Radio. Help them get on the air by supporting the campaign, Our Voices, Our Airwaves: Women in Community Radio!
