"The #IstanbulConvention has no ideology behind it, it has no religion behind it, it has no political views behind it. It's purely about increasing protection for all women & girls, which is something we all want." @hillarymargo 10th anniversary🥳 @dwnews https://t.co/Cp2zIrJHbX https://t.co/54yL1Wt3tC

I would just love to see even one senior EU figure express regret for their personal failure to support democracy and human rights inside the EU... For letting the EU cease being a bloc of exclusively democratic states... On their watch. https://t.co/P6KH2XaE45

Did you know that 90% of children in some countries in the Middle East and North Africa are subject to physical or verbal abuse? Only the worst incidents make the news. More in this new @hrw feature: https://t.co/GSrScsQU9t #EndCorporalPunishment https://t.co/chfonarIZt

The @AfghanistanIHRC has now called for a dedicated, independent investigation under UN auspices. International actors should do more than just condemn attacks--they should support meaningful investigations and accountability. https://t.co/ybgcMLUF3r https://t.co/d7W10cngGz

Beijing goes apoplectic because the Danish government invites the Taiwan president to speak at a "democracy summit." Is there a more democratic part of China that should speak instead? https://t.co/9gAI0rIqUW https://t.co/gPMsf4I14c

#COVID19 has reinforced power grabs & healthcare-related monopolies, highlighted long-standing healthcare failures & widened inequalities so #InternationalPandemicTreaty should put right to health & other human rights front & center https://t.co/aCXFNOYGs2 https://t.co/xtFzwYxFUP

#Jordan’s Education Ministry has banned violent discipline at school, and conducted outreach campaigns on positive discipline. However, the penal law and the Juveniles Act still allow corporal punishment https://t.co/T1tCFaedcx #ENDviolence #EndCorporalPunishment https://t.co/KgrRuHrbUN

After years of campaigning by Japanese activists, #EqualityActJapan🏳️‍🌈 is being negotiated between Japan's ruling & opposition parties. This is the LDP's moment to live up to its human rights obligations. https://t.co/RtRvNwtW30 https://t.co/j3zqRdl0mP

In April, #Japan's ruling party said it would pass an #LGBT law during the current Diet session. But their bill fails to mention ANY nondiscrimination protections. We need #EqualityActJapan! 📣 https://t.co/768CGygOxX https://t.co/o7P9COOY4c

No law explicitly prohibits violent “discipline” of children in #Egypt. An official national survey found that two out of three Egyptian students had been beaten at school with sticks, belts, canes or whips. https://t.co/NiSCKYAry5 #ENDviolence #EndCorporalPunishment https://t.co/RIPF74TCDM

Today, May 10, we celebrate Mother Viola Fletcher, one of three known living survivors of the 1921 Tulsa race massacre, who turns 107. She is one of the lead plaintiffs seeking restitution & #reparations for the continual harm she & her family have experienced since the massacre. https://t.co/5UdoWjYsBq
