Posted on: Friday, February 18, 2011
MADRE is proud to announce some exciting news!
We have been nominated for the Third Annual Gender Justice Uncovered Awards, which recognizes advances in international law for women’s human rights. This incredible honor acknowledges our recent victory, when the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) ruled in favor of our legal petition to address sexual violence in Haiti.
In the petition, we demanded immediate and concrete action from the Haitian government to protect the lives of women and girls facing an epidemic of rape in the displacement camps of Haiti.
The People’s Choice Awards will be granted to the nominee that receives the most votes from the public.
