Teodora's Story


Teodora del Carmen Vásquez suffered a stillbirth in 2007, after the rapid onset of serious pain while she was at work. Police arrested her as she lay in a pool of blood. She was later sentenced to 30 years for ‘aggravated homicide’ in a trial full of irregularities under El Salvador’s total ban on abortion.

Women like Teodora are accused of having an abortion, imprisoned, and suffer terrible conditions: they are in cramped, tiny spaces, sleeping on the ground, sweltering in intense heat, and separated from their families and young children.

Narges' Story


Narges Mohammadi has been sentenced to 22 years in prison in Iran. Her “crime” was daring to advocate for women and girls who have suffered human rights abuses.

Sadly, Narges’ story is not unique. Too often, powerful, courageous women like Narges who demand rights for women are seen as a threat by authorities.

Women’s rights defenders around the world are punished simply for standing up for their rights. You can help protect them.

Amnesty supporters change lives.

Because of your amazing support, Amnesty was able to free torture survivor Yecenia Armenta.



"To everyone who has stood by me, I give my heartfelt thanks. Without this support my freedom would have been almost impossible. I want to thank you and to urge you to continue your efforts. Don't stop the beautiful work you are doing for human rights."
- Yecenia Armenta Graciano
