We are women defenders

We defend human rights in a hostile territory, a Mesoamerica where misogyny, racism and capitalism reign, making our lives precarious, plundering our communities and devastating the web of life; where States and other de facto powers attack us because we struggle against their interests and their policies of death. In 2022 alone, we registered 4,083 attacks against us, our organizations and our communities. These are painful facts. Nevertheless, faced with the violence that surrounds us, from our diversity we decided to unite in a pact: the pact of caring among ourselves and caring for our struggles through Feminist Holistic Protection.

We are

IM-Defensoras

Mesoamerican Initiative of Women Human Rights Defenders

We call our political project to take care of ourselves together:
