Justice for Women was established in 1990 as a feminist campaigning organisation that supports, and advocates on behalf of, women who have fought back against or killed violent men.

We strive to eradicate the discrimination in the legal system against women who have suffered male violence.



Nominations for this year's Emma Humphreys Memorial Prize are now open - you can now submit your nominations for women or groups whose work around violence against women you think needs to be recognised on the EHMP website here. 

This year's prize will be held at the Feminism in London conference on 14th of October 2017.
