Empowering women to engage effectively in governance

Femicide in Honduras: "This machista society breeds a growing and tangible hatred towards women."

On Sunday the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women will help to focus the world's attention on women's right to live a life free from violence. RHV partners in Honduras paint a picture in words of the rising levels of femicide, and the lack of political will on the part of the judiciary, law makers and enforcers to deal with it.
