WMC mourns the loss of Dr. Irene Fernandez

Women and Media Collective (WMC) mourns the loss of Dr. Irene Fernandez, a well known human rights activist, who died in the early hours of Monday, March 31, 2014.

Known for her strong voice in promoting and protecting the rights of the less fortunate, Fernandez paid special attention to the rights of less privileged women such as migrant domestic workers. WMC commends her work and recognises her as being among the first advocates from Asia tobring the human rights of migrant workers to regional and international fora.
