About the Alliance

The Gender Equality in Law Campaign (GELC) Alliance is a solidarity group comprising law societies, bar associations, judicial bodies, women’s rights organizations, regional and international organizations, think tanks and advocacy groups united and committed to supporting the GELC and advancing the voice of women in law and leadership. 


Participating in IAWL's initiatives to increase awareness of the obstacles women encounter in the legal field reflects a commitment to promoting gender justice and equality. Additionally, the Alliance supports the attainment of UN Sustainable Development Goals #5 (Gender Equality) and #16 (Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions), along with the African Union Agenda 2063 goal #17 (Gender Equality).


As a member of the GELC Alliance, your organization will have the opportunity to contribute to the campaign's success in various ways.
