International Courts and the African Woman Judge: Unveiled Narratives

Event Co-sponsors

Institute for African Women in Law

International Courts and the African Woman Judge examines the often misunderstood, overlooked and underrated contributions of African women to the global discourse on feminism, global justice, international courts and international organizations. Using legal narratives and in-depth exploration of seven women judges, the book debunks existing misconceived notions of the individual and personal agency of the African woman.

Join the Wilson Center’s Women in Public Service Project and the Institute for African Women in Law for a conversation on the importance of gender diversity, representative benches, and international courts focusing on women judges from the continent of Africa.
