From August 25-28, 2018, WLP Nigeria/CEADER hosted a RTOT. Activists from Ghana, Mauritania, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Kenya, and Uganda gathered in Lagos for WLP’s capacity building institute on reforming discriminatory family laws. Participants presented information on the status of family laws in their countries, engaged in group activities, held brainstorming sessions, and formed a collective vision for achieving gender equality in the family.
WLP kicked off its global campaign against discriminatory family law with its event, 24 Hours for Equality in the Family. Partners from eight countries screened WLP's new documentary, Equality: It's All in the Family to mark the occasion.
