The Centre for Women’s Justice is a new Charity which aims to advance the human rights of women and girls in England and Wales by:

(1)     Holding the state to account for failures to prevent violence against women and girls

(2)    Challenging discrimination against women and girls in the criminal justice system

This event will bring together survivors, activists, women’s sector groups, academics and others concerned with violence against women and girls to explore with lawyers how to hold the state to account and challenge discrimination within the criminal justice system.

You are invited to the third of a series events to be held around England and Wales, aimed at bringing together survivors, activists, women’s sector groups, academics and others concerned with violence against women and girls to explore with lawyers how to hold the state to account and challenge discrimination within the criminal justice system. The seminar will consist of a series of presentations from lawyers and litigants who have brought legal challenges and from those on the frontline to describe some of the key challenges they face with the aim of getting everyone thinking more about working collaboratively and about ways to use the law to challenge state failures around violence against women.
