Human Rights Innovators

Human Rights Innovators highlights hundreds of key figures who fought for human rights around the globe. These informative, in-depth biographies feature those activists who fought to end slavery and discrimination, promote the rights of women and children, and those whose mission is to promote peace, freedom and equal rights around the world. 

These extraordinary individuals include activists, writers, environmentalists, educators, religious figures, medical professionals, lawyers, political leaders, journalists, pacifists, philosophers, scientists and Nobel Prize recipients. Through the lives of these thought-leaders in the human rights movement, students and researchers will gain new insight into the figures and events that shaped the conversation regarding human rights issues around the globe.

Biographies represent a strong multi-ethnic, cross-gender focus. In addition to including individual's historical significance and leadership skills, readers will discover that many of the profiled human rights innovators demonstrated new and different ways of thinking for the time in which they lived, often impacting socil and political events of today.
