“Empowering Women Human Rights Defenders for Sustainable Development,”
HRCU recognizes the importance of providing social protection to women with the aim of minimizing their vulnerability, building their potential through innovative approaches so that they can contribute effectively to the country’s development process. Encouragement is given to women human rights defenders to continue mobilizing women and key stakeholders to ensure that they understand their rights and responsibilities and ensure that they identify the issues that affect them and hold the different stakeholders accountable on their roles and responsibilities in respecting, promoting and fulfilling human rights.
The Human Rights Centre Uganda on this important day for women calls upon government to support women human rights defenders. This is a great day and important time in the history to do everything possible to help forge a more gender-balanced world. Women have come a long way, yet there's still more to be achieved.
Happy Women’s Day 2019
