Access to Justice Initiative Update
WGEF’s Access to Justice Initiative seeks 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.
This week, WGEF staff conducted a 2-day refresher training to better equip 10 champions to address the issues they face. These challenges include navigating the legal system, domestic violence, and accessing land rights. The training provides skills in self-care, debate, adequate reporting, listening, and how to work with victims. The participants also focus on prevention and how to share what they’ve learned with other community members.
