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.



Justice for Women, David and James are calling on people to sign our petition asking the CPS to offer Sally the chance plead guilty to manslaughter and avoid the traumatic ordeal of another trial. Please sign the petition here
