This book presents the voices and perspectives of women around the world that came together to discuss women's leadership in areas of women's human rights at the 1994 Women's Global Leadership Institute (WGLI). Leaders of international NGOs provide cogent analyses of the utility of the human rights framework for activists internationally, including information about documenting, lobbying and demanding accountability for gender-based human rights abuses. This book also relates the critical reflections and strategies for action developed by participants in workshops. Topics addressed include violence against women, social and economic justice, reproductive and health rights, and diversity and leadership in women's organizing activities.
