Fighting for Our Lives: Violence and Discrimination Against Women and LGBT Persons in Haiti

This 46-page report documents the situation of women and LGBT individuals since the earthquake in Haiti. Pervasive sexual and gender-based violence against women and girls has plagued communities living in displacement camps and in resource-poor neighborhoods. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (“LGBT”) individuals also experienced a drastic increase in stigmatization, discrimination and violence, which have included increasingly violent anti-LGBT protests inculpating LGBT individuals as the cause of the earthquake.
