Following the conviction of Brishna’s rapist on 25 October, the Afghan authorities have now committed to ensuring her protection. The 10-year-old girl from Kunduz province is receiving medical and psychological attention. Brishna was raped in May 2014 by a local mullah. While in the hospital, she received death threats to be killed.

Following the announcement that the St. Louis County Grand Jury decided not to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of Michael Brown, Amnesty International USA deployed a team of human rights observers to Ferguson to monitor protests and law enforcement response. 

Amnesty International supporters worldwide today join the 16 Days against Gender Violence campaign to challenge violence and discrimination against women and girls, including the denial of sexual and reproductive rights.
