On November 2, 2010, The Protection Project will host the Fifth Annual Symposium on “The US Trafficking Victims Protection Act and the UN Trafficking Protocol: Ten years Later” at The Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies, in Washington, D.C., USA. The Protection Project is now calling for scholarly papers describing and analyzing the lessons learned in the legal, political, cultural, social, or economic fields since the enactment of the US Trafficking Victims Protection Act and the UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children in the year 2000. Scholars and professionals are encouraged to apply. The authors of the selected papers will be invited to present the findings of their study at The Protection Project Fifth Annual Symposium. Following the Symposium, selected papers will be published in The Protection Project Journal of Human Rights and Civil Society, 4th ed.  

Le développement des féminismes s’est historiquement accompagné de celui des antiféminismes. Tout comme le féminisme prend plusieurs formes, l’antiféminisme se présente en effet sous divers aspects, d’où le titre provisoire « Les antiféminismes ».

The challenge to platforms for gender equality comes not just from actors with fundamentalist agendas, but from a conjuncture where women’s rights have been opportunistically instrumentalized to serve geopolitical goals, and neo-liberal policies have severed social justice from gender equality concerns

The Protection Project at The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, in cooperation with the Alexandria University Faculty of Law in Alexandria, Egypt, will be hosting a conference on “Women’s Rights in Egypt and Arab States,” which will take place December 1 – 2, 2010 at the Helnan Palestine Hotel in Alexandria, Egypt. The conference will bring together professors of law, religion and social sciences and representatives from NGOs and other elements of civil society to discuss a broad array of topics related to the rights of women in the Arab world, including Islamic law, personal status and family laws, and labor and political rights, among others.

The French parliament's vote this week to ban full-length veils in public was the right move by the wrong group. Some have tried to present the ban as a matter of Islam vs. the West. It is not. First, Islam is not monolithic. It, like other major religions, has strains and sects. Many Muslim women -- despite their distaste for the European political right wing -- support the ban precisely because it is a strike against the Muslim right wing.

L'ONU s'est dotée vendredi 2 juillet d'une nouvelle structure disposant de forts pouvoirs, chargée d'accélérer l'amélioration de la condition des femmes dans le monde. L'Assemblée générale, où siègent les 192 Etats membres des Nations unies, a adopté à l'unanimité une résolution portant création de cette "Entité de l'ONU pour l'égalité de genre et l'autonomisation des femmes" ou, pour faire plus court, "ONU Femmes".

Some 65 years after it was founded, and after decades of reports on every species of sex discrimination and its wasteful effects, the United Nations has decided to set up a single, powerful body to promote equality for women around the world.

كانت حملة أوقفوا العنف ضد المرأة أول حملة عالمية طويلة الأجل تقوم بها منظمة العفو الدولية، إذ امتدت ست سنوات إلى عام 2010. وكانت حملة طموحة جداً على صعيد مادتها ولأنها اقتضت إجراء تغييرات جوهرية في طرائق عمل منظمة العفو الدوليةوبالتالي فإن تقرير مراجعة الحملة الذي نتج منها مفصل ومعقد، وهناك ترابط بين العديد من القضايا المهمة المتعلقة بأداء منظمة العفو الدولية وإنجازاتها، ولا يسعى تقرير التجميع هذا إلى إيجاز جميع التفاصيل والتعقيدات أو الإحاطة بها، بل يستهدف إلقاء الضوء على عملية التعلم الهامة ومناقشة القضايا الحرجة التي تواجهها منظمة العفو الدولية في المستقبل فيما يتعلق بحقوق المرأة والحملات العالمية الكبرى على السواء مع تقديم بعض التوصيات ويمكن العثور على التقرير الكامل.

La campagne Halte à la violence contre les femmes (HVCF) a été la première campagne mondiale de longue durée d'Amnesty International. Elle s'est déroulée sur six ans, de 2004 à 2010. C'était une campagne très ambitieuse tant en raison de son thème que des changements importants qu'elle nécessitait dans les méthodes de travail de l'organisation. Son rapport d'évaluation est donc extrêmement détaillé et complexe ; les différents aspects relatifs à la performance et aux résultats d'Amnesty International sont pour la plupart liés entre eux.

The Stop Violence against Women Campaign was Amnesty International's first long-term global thematic campaign. It lasted six years (from 2004 to 2010), was very ambitious in its scope, and required major shifts in Amnesty International's ways of working. We commissioned an external review of the campaign in order to identify key areas of learning and recommendations that can be used to strengthen our future work. Two independent consultants were commissioned to carry out this review, and to provide us with an objective, honest assessment of the campaign.
