Amel Hadjadj

Algerian Feminist Association

Amel Hadjadj is an Algerian woman human rights defender and member of the Algerian Feminist Association. She is also a member of the ‘Kif Kif’ movement which promotes LGBT+ rights, and works towards the achievement of gender equality in Algeria.

The lifting of Algeria’s 19-year state of emergency in early 2011 did not have a positive effect on the situation of human rights defenders (HRDs). Human rights defenders have continued to be subjected to harassment, threats, physical attacks, arbitrary detention and legal proceedings.
