*International Coalition Launches Online Directory of Urgent Responses 
for Women Human Rights Defenders*

10 December 2012

On the occasion of International Human Rights Day 
<http://www.un.org/en/events/humanrightsday/>, the Urgent Responses 
Working Group of theWomen Human Rights Defenders (WHRD) International 
Coalition <http://www.defendingwomen-defendingrights.org/index.php>and 
the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) 
<http://www.awid.org>are pleased to launch the *Online Directory of 
Urgent Responses for Women Human Rights Defenders* 
<http://urgent-responses.awid.org/index.php/Home>.

The Online Directory is based on the mapping of "Urgent Responses for 
Women Human Rights Defenders at Risk” 
<http://www.awid.org/Library/Urgent-Responses-for-Women-Human-Rights-Defenders-at-Risk-Mapping-and-Preliminary-Assessment>produced 
by the WHRD International Coalition and AWID in June 2011. The 
re-designed Online Directory 
<http://urgent-responses.awid.org/index.php/Home>**takes the Table of 
Responses from the 2011 publication, providing easy access to resources 
and responses for WHRDs.

The Online Directory is the first collective effort to systematize the 
range of responses available for WHRDs at risk,with information about 
women’s and human rights organizations at international and regional 
levels. We hope that this resource will be used by WHRDs and their 
organizations worldwide to access information and support when facing 
emergency situations.

The Online Directory 
<http://urgent-responses.awid.org/index.php/Home>was created by AWID in 
its role as Chair of the Urgent Responses Working Group of the WHRD 
International Coalition. Wewill continue to add new resources and update 
the information in the Directory; Spanish and French versions will be 
available in early 2013.

The members of the Urgent Responses Working Group of the WHRD 
International Coalition are:
