Defense of Human Rights

We strive to move women’s human rights forward and to ensure that they are respected both at home and by the legal system. We particularly focus on women’s sexual and reproductive rights, which are at the heart of Las Libres’ social commitment. In other words, Centro Las Libres strives to ensure that all women can exercise their full rights, with no exceptions.

To defend women’s rights, it is essential to work toward influencing public opinion and changing attitudes within the general population in support of women’s human rights. We need to ensure that the government does not reverse the progress made thus far. We need to use public participation to spur the creation of effective laws and public policies for true equality between men and women and the elimination of gender-based discrimination.
