Within the framework of the German Presidency of the Committee of Ministers, the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection is hosting a virtual “fireside chat” on Women and Human Rights – Personal Stories.
In a relaxed and personal setting, three women committed to human rights in high-profile positions – the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Dunja Mijatović, the German member of the Venice Commission and former Vice-President of the European Court of Human Rights Angelika Nussberger and the human rights lawyer Nani Jansen Reventlow – will share their personal stories and discuss the position of women in human rights law.
Over the course of the discussion, which will be opened by the State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection Margaretha Sudho, the panelists will reflect on gender-related obstacles and advantages that come along with their human rights commitment, highlight the contribution of women to the advancement of human rights, identify current challenges for women’s human rights and explore whether there is a typical female perspective on human rights.
The link to connect to this discussion will be made available soon.
