The Institute for African Women in Law is excited to release our latest project, the Pioneer African Women in Law Project (PAWLP). PAWLP is a digital archive documenting the lives and contributions of the first women in law and modern-day trailblazing women in law across Africa. This project falls under one of our focal areas— research.
We have adopted a R.A.D.I.C.A.L approach in our documentation by:
Restoring and preserving the historical agency of the African woman in law.
Analytically appraising the contributions of the African woman in law.
Demarginalizing the voices of African women in law.
Intellectually centering the lived experiences of the African woman in law.
Conscientiously mainstreaming the contributions of the African woman in law.
Agenda setting for research on African women in law.
