African Women in Law Speak

 

The Vanguard Edition

Legal Narratives

"If the African woman's life experiences and story could only be told in the context of other people's lives and experiences, and not exclusively through her own voice, then how can she be independent of those external filters? Although her existence itself wouldn't be doubted, the objective reality of her identity would be obscured."

 

J.  Jarpa Dawuni, Esq. Ph.D.

Founder and Executive Director-- Institute for African Women in Law

Quoted in Introduction to International Courts and the African Woman Judge: Unveiled Narratives (Routledge, 2018)

"Legal narratives are an important tool in telling stories—especially those that would otherwise not get told. Storytelling is a salient part of the African and African-American experience."

 

Judge Gabrielle Kirk McDonald

Former Judge/President, International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY)

Quoted in Foreword to International Courts and the African Woman Judge: Unveiled Narratives (Routledge, 2018)
