Six female human rights defenders you should know

Six female human rights defenders you should know | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

As a human rights activist, I know too well the unwavering determination needed to defend the rights of society's most vulnerable and marginalised.

For many activists and human rights defenders, especially women, this struggle for freedom often comes with persecution, imprisonment, exile and political attacks. This year's International Women's Day is dedicated to women who 'Make it Happen', and plenty of women come to mind who embody this theme.

International Women's Day 2015: Celebrating the whirlwind wit of Simone de Beauvoir

International Women's Day 2015: Celebrating the whirlwind wit of Simone de Beauvoir | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it
It is probably fair to say that I approached Simone de Beauvoir the wrong way round: I visited her grave before I read a word she'd written. This was not particularly my intention.

He liked Sartre so much that he wanted to visit the great man's grave.
