Justice is the foundation ensuring women become equal participants in decision making, development, and their own futures. Without access to justice, women are disenfranchised and disempowered, experiencing violence, abuse and inequality. This initiative demand that women are viewed not as victims but as agents of change for social and economic justice.
To address violence against women, gender bias, inequality, and gaps in the justice chain for women, this initiative strives to provide the critical information and resources, enabling women to know their legal and human rights within the justice system.
Goals of the initiative are:
Define and address discrimination within the justice system
Create an action plan; using grassroots organizing strategies, exploring formal/informal mechanisms (hotline, peace huts)
Ensure government is held accountable for enforcement/impact of laws-oversight mechanisms
WGEF believes that women are natural leaders, and when given opportunities and access will be a transformative force for peace, democracy, security and equality.
