The Promise of Legal Equality for Women: Stories of Struggle from Sudan and Canada
November 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
There are fundamental, comprehensive changes required in the legal framework in a post-revolution Sudan in order for women to be able to fully assert their rights. Concurrently, research from the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Accountability & Justice paints a stark picture of the social & legal gaps that deny women in Canada their full agency.
Join us as we bring together Asha El-Karib, of Inter Pares’ long-term counterpart, the Sudanese Organization for Research & Development, & Amanda Dale, of the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability, for a dialogue on legal equality for women in Sudan & Canada. They will explore the local manifestations of a global pandemic of violence against women; the difficulties in using the legal systems to access justice; the centrality of listening to women’s rights advocates when crafting judicial mechanisms; & the potential of international solidarity.
PS: The webinars will be in English and simultaneous interpretation will be available in French. All webinars will be recorded.
