How you can show your support for women’s rights activists


--------- SCRIPT --------- 

Reporter Script:

The topic of women’s rights is one of the largest discussions in the world today. Although great strides are being made for equality, there is still a far way to go. Many women’s rights advocates face violence and harassment for peacefully advocating human rights.

One of these advocates is Marielle Franco, an activist and politician who fought for the rights of black women, LGBTI people and youth in Brazil. She was killed last march because of her advocacy work.

There are actions we can take to support this movement, and advocates like Marielle. Jackie Hansen, a women’s rights campaigner with Amnesty International Canada explains:

Spokesperson Quote:

“December 10th is International Human Rights Day. Amnesty International will be writing letters of inspiration to women advocating for justice and equality. Your letter of support will tell them they’re not alone, and will let those in power know we’re watching”.
