iDefendRights: collecting stories from human rights defenders worldwide

DefendDefenders is excited to invite you to participate in iDefendRights, a new global project to create a massive audio archive of voices of people all over the world who defend human rights. We hope that you will record yourself on this platform, responding to a few questions, and that you will ask other to do the same. Once you fired up your computer, it will only take a few minutes.
All over the world, human rights defenders and civil society are under attack, confronted by hostile narratives that question the value and legitimacy of our work. Together with the Norwegian Human Rights Fund, Memria.

Human Rights Defender of the month: Esther Tawiah

In Ghana, Esther Tawiah is one of the loudest voices for women empowerment and gender. It is also why she is one of the most loathed. Born and raised in New-Tafo in the country’s eastern region, Esther grew up surrounded by a culture that frowned at the idea of women participating in public affairs, and witnessed firsthand, the backlash those who dared to challenge that cultural norm faced.

“I grew up in a society where ageism and sexism were so entrenched. As a young person, you weren’t supposed to give your opinion on public issues, especially if you were a woman. Women who dared to speak up were caricatured and branded as frustrated, unmarriageable prostitutes, all designed to shut them up,” she says.
