Countering Violence Against Women: International Perspectives of Feminist Advocacy and Family Law Reform
Join Women’s Learning Partnership and the International Development Research Centre to learn about 3 years of research on the link between family laws and violence against women.
We at the Women’s Learning Partnership (WLP) join the many organizations and individuals calling for the United Nations Security Council and the international community to take appropriate measures to safeguard the human rights and humanitarian needs of the people of Afghanistan.
As part of the CSW65 Virtual NGO CSW Forum, WLP brought together leading women's rights advocates for a discussion on reforming discriminatory family laws that limit women’s access to financial independence and stability, including inheritance laws, property rights, early marriage, travel restrictions, access to education, and more. Without equal access to economic opportunities, women cannot have full and effective participation and decision-making in public and private life. Panelists shared their experiences in successful legal reforms and discuss strategies for building coalitions for change.
