Published on

This session explores the role of human rights defenders, and in particular women’s rights defenders, and their use of nonviolent means to address, confront and respond to violence during armed conflict and afterwards. We’ll look at these human rights defenders’ various strategies and methods, and security risks and their attempts to mitigate these. We look at how they use and manipulate gender roles as a means to organize, stay safe and carry out their work, and the risks associated with this. Finally, we look at what they have achieved and where their efforts are blocked or fail and why.

  2. 2. On gender analysis "That is, gender analysis is a skill. Its not apassing fancy, its not a way to be polite. And itsnot something one picks up casually, on the run.One doesnt acquire the capacity to do usefulgender analysis simply because one is"modern", "loves women," "believes inequality, or "has daughters." One has to learnhow to do it, practice doing it, be candidlyreflective about ones shortcomings, try again."- Cynthia Enloe, Foreword to Carol Cohn, Women and Wars (2013)
