A feminist sociologist, Medina currently works as Security and Gender Analyst for the Center for Women’s Rights (CDM) in Honduras. CDM fights to end violence against women in Central America. In Honduras, such violence is widespread, affecting women’s and girls’ lives in many ways. However, women-led organization like CDM are making positive difference, and since its founding in 1992, the organization has received significant recognition for protection of women’s right to political participation, labor protections, and freedom from violence. Neesa and CDM’s work is featured in “The Invisible Crisis: the Female Face of Forced Migration” a short documentary Centro Presente produced last year about the forced migration of Central American women.
