25 Sep WITNESS Embarks on Campaign to Combat Gender-Based Violence

September 2010 | WITNESS will embark on a new strategic vision which includes shifting the way that we work. We will no longer partner exclusively with individual human rights groups, but we will begin working with networks of human rights organizations working together on coordinated campaigns. The network campaign partnership model will allow us to seize a new opportunity to tap into existing networks working collectively on an issue (or in a complementary way) nationally, regionally, or internationally.


01 Jan WITNESS Works to Fight Feminicide in Northern Mexico

Thousands of women have been murdered in Ciudad Juárez– a phenomenon called feminicide. Young women’s mangled bodies, often showing brutal signs of sexual violence, have appeared on the outskirts of Ciudad Juárez by the US-Mexican border. WITNESS partnered with Comisión Mexicana de Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos to produce Dual Injustice: Feminicide and Torture in Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua.
