Front Line Defenders is an organisation founded with the specific aim of protecting human rights defenders at risk, people who work, non-violently, for any or all of the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
One of those human rights defenders, Regina Fonseca, will be visiting UL on April 26th to speak of her experience in Honduras. Regina is a Honduran women’s rights defender with more than 30 years of experience in the struggle for these rights, particularly sexual and reproductive rights. She is currently Director of International Advocacy at the Women’s Rights Centre (Centro de los Derechos de Mujer - CDM) in Honduras, having spent years working as the coordinator of the sexual and reproductive rights programme of the organisation. She is a psychologist by profession and has a postgraduate degree in women’s studies.
