Madre Press Room: Women Worldwide Will Honor the Lives of Feminist Leaders Who Died in Haiti’s Earthquake

An excerpt from MADRE.ORG:

“All three leaders had a long standing trajectory in feminist activism reforming a judiciary that never took rape seriously, creating organizations and houses to protect girls and women against domestic violence and trafficking, publishing a feminist newspaper, expanding a documentary center and an historical archive, and struggling for the protection of sexual and reproductive rights.”
