Decisions made in international courts affect women around the world. Yet women occupy less than 19% of seats on international courts and tribunals. The lack of women's voices in the international judiciary prevents inclusive decision-making on issues that directly impact their daily lives. The desire to create inclusive and representative institutions at all levels of decision-making should consider the importance of creating equal oppportunities for women's representation on international courts.
