WLP Family Law Anthology

WLP will launch Feminist Advocacy, Family Law and Violence against Women: International Perspectives, on November 1, 2018 in conjunction with the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace, and Security (GIWPS).

Leading women's rights advocates from around the globe will provide remarks on the status of discriminatory family laws and structures that perpetuate inequality and violence both in the home and in communities. An expert panel will lead a discussion around these issues, highlighting effective strategies for reform.

This event is part of WLP’s global advocacy effort, the Equality Starts in the Family campaign, carried out in close partnership with GIWPS, UN Women, Global Fund for Women, and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada.
