Sunila Abeyesekera- AWID Tribute to Feminists and Women Human Rights Defenders Who Have Passed Away 2013 from awidvimeo on Vimeo.

As part of the 16 Days Campaign Against Gender Based Violence (November 25 – December 10, 2013) through an online tribute, AWID is honoring Feminists and Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) Who Are No Longer With Us, and whose contributions to the advancement of human rights are very much missed. On the occassion of International Women Human Rights Defenders Day, November 29, 2013, we are commemorating Sunila Abeysekera, a tireless defender of human rights in Sri Lanka. Sunila is remembered as a mother, activist, writer, critic, feminist, and singer with a wonderful sense of humor. Listen to Sunila sing in this short slide show we’ve put together to commemorate her life. To visit the full online exhibit of WHRDs who are no longer with us please go to: http://bit.ly/1dCcfMV
