ISLA uses a broader sexual rights framing to address violations of bodily autonomy and integrity. The programme includes sexual orientation and gender identity and expression, women’s access to reproductive services, marital rape and early marriages.

Current Projects

  • The first task will be establishing a network for lawyers working on sexual rights in Africa. This involves identifying and sustaining a critical mass of lawyers who are ready to conduct sexual rights litigation when required to.
  • Working with the network and social movements to develop a shared vision and strategy for advancing sexual rights and responding to violations of sexual rights using the courts.
