Women’s rights under attack
First regional tribunal denounces women’s rights violations, urging legal action.
"Our countries’ governments are the main culprits that deny women their rights to be able to develop their lives in freedom," said Ana Lucía Herrera of the Women’s Communicational Workshop, in Ecuador.
Herrera participated in the Regional Tribunal for the Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of Women, which took place July 15 in Lima. Representatives from Bolivia, Colombian Chile, Ecuador and Peru discussed five cases, each signifying a violation of women’s rights in the region.
