Women Access to Justice for Gender-Based Violence

ICJ Lisa Gormley

The guide is designed to support legal practitioners and human rights defenders involved, or interested, in pursuing cases of gender-based violence. Lasting change to address the root causes of violence against women can only take place as part of a coordinated effort on behalf of multiple stakeholders, however the ICJ believes that legal practitioners and human rights defenders are indispensable to addressing the problem and realizing women access to justice.
