This Documentation Manual is rooted in a groundbreaking collective international feminist project that began in the mid-2000s and that sought to create, build and promote an analysis about women human rights defenders who experience violations because of who we are and because of what we do. The related international campaign, titled Defending Women Defending Rights, was also first of its kind. This was a mobilisation to bolster activism for women’s rights, generally, and also to focus on the human rights and experiences of activists themselves. In other words, the campaign sought not to focus only on women’s human rights broadly, but also and primarily on the experiences of activists, organizers and defenders of those rights.
