International Day of Indigenous Peoples, 9 August 2016
The theme of the 2016 International Day was: Indigenous People’s Right to Education. This right is stipulated in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2007) and the UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education (1960). Education can be a means through which indigenous peoples manage the development of their communities and actively participate at all levels of decision-making processes. Barriers to education for indigenous girls and women need to be addressed, as they often experience greater obstacles to realise this right than boys. This means ensuring provision of education in the indigenous mother tongue; finding innovative ways to reach isolated communities such as through radio; and cultural sensitivity in educational approaches.

Call for Submissions – Online Women Human Rights Defenders Tribute
The Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) will launch the 2016 Online Tribute to Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) as part of the annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence campaign, November 25 – December 10, 2016. Stories (biographies and photos) are invited of feminists and WHRDs and who are no longer with us. Please send your contribution to membership@awid.org  by September 30, 2016. AWID especially encourages submissions concerning groups routinely rendered invisible, such as young women, disabled women, sex workers, and indigenous women.
