Re-writing African Judgements from Feminist Perspectives & LUC Platform Launch

We are launching the Let us Collaborate platform that seeks to simplify the process for women’s rights and sexual rights defenders in Africa to initiate, identify, engage, and partner in collaborative efforts on strategic litigation, research, advocacy and capacity strengthening initiatives. We will also have discussions on how better judgments can be provided or written differently from an African feministic standpoint. Discussants are members of the African Feminist Judgment Project.

About Us

Founded in 2014, the Initiative for Strategic Litigation in Africa (ISLA) is a Pan-African and feminist initiative with a timely remit: to strengthen strategic human rights litigation across the African continent. Essentially, we aim to change the way that strategic litigation is used so as to enable broader access to justice and to support those who seek to hold states accountable for violations of women’s human rights and sexual rights.
