The FAWCO Human Rights Task Force is a comprehensive network of advocates working to ensure human rights for all women. The Task Force will keep members aware of new developments impacting women’s rights, including UN updates, through Human Rights Task Force Bulletins and other publications. We also engage FAWCO Members in awareness and action campaigns.
 
It is our goal to leverage FAWCO’s unique strength as a global women’s organization to help end violence and discrimination against women and girls. 
 
Task Force Committees include:
 
Economic Empowerment for Women
Ending Violence Against Women
Political Empowerment for Women
Women in Peace and Conflict

Learn more about the issues and download information sheets to share with your club members on the Committee pages.  
 
For current information on resources to aid refugees, please visit the FAWCO UN Team's Current Initiatives page.

All FAWCO members are invited to get involved in their area of interest. If you don’t see yours here, let us know. Please email Therese Hartwell, Chair of the Human Rights Task Force at  to discuss participation. 

And sign up to receive the Human Rights Task Force Bulletin at Subscriptions.
