Tanzanian Domestic Workers Abused in Oman, UAE
Description: Tanzanian domestic workers in Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) face excessive working hours, unpaid salaries, and physical and sexual abuse. Abusive visa-sponsorship rules in those countries and gaps in Tanzania’s policies leave the women exposed to exploitation. Tanzanian, Omani, and UAE governments fail to protect Tanzanian migrant domestic workers. Oman and the UAE’s kafala—visa-sponsorship—rules tie workers to their employers, and the lack of labor law protections leaves workers exposed to a wide range of abuse. Gaps in Tanzania’s laws and policies on recruitment and migration leave Tanzanian women exposed at the outset to abuse, and fail to provide adequate assistance for exploited workers.

Rape Victims in India Struggle to Get Justice
Description: Rape survivors in India face significant barriers to obtaining justice and critical support services. Legal and other reforms adopted since the gang rape and murder of a student, Jyoti Singh Pandey, in Delhi in December 2012 have not been fully realized. Women and girls who survive rape and other sexual violence often suffer humiliation at police stations and hospitals. Police are frequently unwilling to register their complaints, victims and witnesses receive little protection, and medical professionals still compel degrading “two-finger” tests. These obstacles to justice and dignity are compounded by inadequate health care, counseling, and legal support for victims during criminal trials of the accused.

भारत: बलात्कार पीड़ितों के इंसाफ की राह में रुकावटें
Description: ह्यूमन राइट्स वॉच ने आज जारी एक रिपोर्ट में कहा है कि भारत में बलात्कार की उत्तरजीवी महिलाएं और लड़कियाँ न्याय और जरूरी सहायता सेवाएं प्राप्त करने में भारी अवरोधों का सामना कर रही हैं. दिसंबर 2012 में दिल्ली में छात्रा ज्योति सिंह पांडे के सामूहिक बलात्कार और हत्या के बाद कानूनी और अन्य सुधार तो किए गए, लेकिन अभी तक वे पूरी तरह ज़मीन पर नहीं उतर पाए हैं. 82- पृष्ठों की रिपोर्ट, "सब मुझे दोष देते हैं": भारत में यौन हमलों की उत्तरजीवियों के समक्ष न्याय और सहायता सेवाएँ पाने में बाधाएं, यह बताती है कि बलात्कार और अन्य यौन हिंसा की उत्तरजीवी महिलाओं और लड़कियों को प्रायः पुलिस थानों और अस्पतालों में अपमान का शिकार होना पड़ता है. अक्सर पुलिस उनकी शिकायतें दर्ज करने में आना-कानी करती है, पीड़ितों और गवाहों को मामूली संरक्षण मिलता है और चिकित्सा पेशेवर अभी भी अपमानजनक "टू-फिंगर टेस्ट"(दो अँगुलियों द्वारा परीक्षण) के लिए दबाव डालते हैं. न्याय और गरिमा के रास्ते की ये बाधाएं पीड़ितों को मिलने वाली अपर्याप्त स्वास्थ्य सेवा, परामर्श, और कानूनी सहायता से जुड़ी हुई हैं.

IMMIGRANTS ARE US
Description: Immigrant rights are under threat by the Trump administration. Trump’s campaign promises are becoming reality. While the administration bellows about building a wall, families are being torn apart, people who have lived almost their entire lives in the US are facing deportation, and tens of thousands are in detention conditions. Many of us are already fighting back against anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies. And on November 8th – the 1 year anniversary of President Trump’s election – it is time to raise the volume. https://www.hrw.org/immigrantsareus

US: Doctors Still Do Harmful Surgeries on Intersex Kids
Description: Medical professional associations should enact standards of care for intersex children that rule out medically unnecessary surgery before patients are old enough to consent, Human Rights Watch and interACT said in a report released today. After decades of controversy in the medical community over the procedures, the lack of centralized care standards allows doctors to continue operating on children’s gonads, internal sex organs, and genitals when they are too young to participate in the decision, even though such surgery is dangerous and could be safely deferred. The 41-page report, “A Changing Paradigm: US Medical Provider Discomfort with Intersex Care Practices,” examines the controversy over the operations inside the medical community and the pressure on parents to opt for surgery.

Australia: Stop Off-Shore Processing for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Papua New Guinea
Description: Refugees and asylum seekers on Papua New Guinea’s (PNG) Manus Island have suffered repeated violent attacks and robberies by locals, with inadequate hospital care on the island and no action by police, Human Rights Watch said today. After more than four years since Australia initiated its policy of mandatory offshore processing of refugees, more than 800 men remain stuck in Papua New Guinea. The Australian and PNG governments have said they will close the main detention center by October 31, 2017. They say refugees should move to a transit facility on the island or settle in PNG, or if they are failed asylum seekers, return to their home countries. Instead, by October 31, Human Rights Watch urges Australia to evacuate all approximately 800 men who sought refuge in Australia but who have spent more than four years in camps on Manus Island, in Papua New Guinea.
