Women Rising X: International Changemakers – Human Rights Advocates

Play

Women are gaining influence as leaders throughout the world fighting for peace, justice, the environment and civil society. In this program we profile three courageous human rights advocates.

Palestinian-American Huwaida Arraf founded an organization that monitors the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Maria LaHood is an American lawyer who takes on high profile human rights cases, like that of Maher Arrar, who was a victim of “extraordinary rendition” at the hands of the US government. Argentinian Patricia Isasa is an activist who is bringing to justice those who detained and tortured her in her own country, and is fighting against The School of the Americas.

Featuring:

Huwaida Arraf, founder, International Solidarity Movement (ISM); Maria LaHood, lead attorney, Center for Constitutional Rights; Patricia Isasa, activist and former torture victim.
