Happy International Women's Day!

This year’s theme, “Break The Bias” calls for action to dismantle the biases that limit women globally from making further advances in society. IAWL celebrates African women in law who have broken, and continue to break, barriers as they push for a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive legal system.

To commemorate this year's International Women's Day, we are releasing the first issue of the IAWL Magazine. This inaugural issue profiles 50 women in law from across Africa who are inspirational figures in their home countries and beyond. The 50 women in this selection have made monumental contributions to the legal field, and their impact will undoubtedly shape the future of the legal practice for years to come.
