ABOUT GLOBAL LEGAL REVIEW

As a brainchild of International Women’s Initiative (IWI), Global Legal Review was established as a means to further aid women seeking answers and change to their circumstances. We are a team of dedicated and passionate remotely-based volunteers, striving towards our common vision of equality and gender justice.

Our work predominantly focuses on raising awareness of women’s rights issues across the globe through legal research, reports and lobbying efforts. We aim to not only educate the international community on the status of women’s rights abuse through our research and lobbying efforts, but also to empower and support those women who wish to seek justice and accountability through legal mechanisms.
