The Women’s Human Rights Campaign has built a global network with the “aim to represent the total breadth of the human female experience across races and boundaries”.

The Declaration on Women’s Sex Based Rights was created by the founders of WHRC to lobby nations to maintain language protecting women and girls on the basis of sex rather than “gender” or “gender identity”.  The document which was launched this past fall, reads like a restatement and reminder of the global human rights which have previously been codified in documents endorsed by nations around the world, so many of them the result of decades of organizing by women around the world to push back against the violence in our lives.

The effort is collecting endorsing signatures, from any ready to support the project.
