The Women’s League of Burma, an umbrella organization of 13 ethnic women’s organizations, has been documenting human rights violations against women and girls in Burma’s ethnic communities through member organizations since it was founded. Since the 2011 UPR, we have
been working in affected communities to track the progress of the commitments made by the Government of Burma (hereinafter ‘the GOM’). Through our 13 member organisations, field-staff monitor human rights violations against women and girls in communities which often remain
inaccessible to observers, international NGOs, and providers of humanitarian assistance.
