In a largely patriarchal society, women human rights defenders (WHRDs) in Nepal face life-threatening risks and gender-based violence while advocating for women’s rights. On 29 November 2021, WOREC held a public rally in commemorating International Women Human Rights Defenders Day.
Women’s Rehabilitation Centre (WOREC) is a non-governmental organization working for the protection and promotion of human rights. Established in 1991, WOREC is one of the leading national organizations that works to prevent violence against women, its causes and consequences, and to ensure economic, social and cultural well-being of women as well as other marginalized groups by promoting their access to rights and social justice. WOREC started her work with an objective to prevent trafficking of women and children and advocate for the rights of survivors.
