Report: Women Human Rights defenders and the struggle for Justice in Colombia

This joint report by ABColombia, U.S. Office on Colombia (USOC) and Oidhaco presents the situation of women who fight for the respect of human rights and rule of law in Colombia.

Colombia continues to suffer one of the worst humanitarian and human rights crises in the world. Since the change of administration in August 2010, the new government of President Juan Manuel Santos has issued public statements in support of human rights defenders, initiated more open engagement and dialogue and shown a commitment to end the public stigmatization of defenders. However, despite the change in tone, the situation on the ground continues to cause concern.
