Reach all Women In War (Raw in War)


RAW in WAR (Reach all Women in War), a new international human rights group supporting women human rights defenders and women and girl victims of war, was founded on October 5, 2007. An October 6, 2007 letter to the editor of The Times (UK) in support of the new group, was signed by a number of prominent government and NGO officials as well as human rights activists, including Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky, Elena Bonner, Andre Glucksmann, Vaclav Havel, and Zbigniew Brzezinski. It is to be hoped that Raw in War, who’s founder and director Mariana Katzarova was a researcher for 15 years at Amnesty International, will promote universal human rights and avoid the politicization and distortions that are characteristic of some of its members.
