The purpose of the Ginetta Sagan Fund of Amnesty International USA is to support courageous women human rights defenders who are working in dangerous contexts to further the rights of women and children.

The creation of the Ginetta Sagan Fund emphasizes that more human rights work must be done by and for women. The $20,000 award recognizes individual accomplishment, but also serves as a beacon of hope to women everywhere who are fighting for human rights.

The Award is intended to help women throughout the world in their struggle to overcome oppression, to let them know that they are not alone.

The Award:

  • Brings increased international scrutiny to the crisis, region, or issue for which the recipient works.

Award Information
