Margaret Muna Nigba,is a public interest Lawyer, Feminist and Human rights activist. I am the founder and Executive Director of Her Voice Liberia; a non- profit organization dedicated to ensuring access to justice for marginalized and vulnerable women and girls. I operates a Legal Aid Mobile clinic that provides pro- Bono legal services in hard to reach communities in rural Liberia, to vulnerable women and children as part of the efforts to increase access to justice for girls as well as combat SGBV. I am a passionate community organizer and a social change activist who seeks to make a difference locally and globally through community actions and initiatives. I lead a design of issue based advocacies aimed at promoting the rights of women and making their voices heard in society. I have extensive experience attained both in and out outside government ranging from criminal justice and civil cases. I has a good working relationship with most women rights local and international organizations and has collaborated with them on interventions where I believe that comprehensive approach to justice and rule of law will increase access to justice and fulfillment of the rights of women and girls. I have been consistent in my interventions. Combining my passion for women empowerment and my profession as a Lawyer, I founded Her Voice Liberia as a life time commitment to ensuring all women , irrespective of social- economic backgrounds have access to justice. I have rendered pro Bono legal services to over 300 women and girls. I have conducted community dialogues and outreach campaigns for marginalized women and girls to gain a deeper understanding of their fundamental rights and legal procedures available to them to access justice in a timely manner. I have provided live skills training for women and girls as a means of empowerment. My current work with Her Voice Liberia is enabling me disrupt the existing patriarchal norms of our society and give women and girls their voice. I am optimistic that the measurable impact of my work will result in a society. Where all women , irrespective of age , socio- economic backgrounds, and locations can lead healthy lives , make informed decisions,have access to justice and fair trial in court, and live in a world free from all forms of sexual and Gender based violence. Through Her voice I have established a tall free hot lines were women and children can easily use to reach our legal aid clinic. I am working with paralegal in 10 communities to promote justice in their local communities and to increase their participation in the justice delivery sector. Despite the huge international protocols and Gender - responsive laws and policies, there still exists a surge in the number of sexual and Gender - based violence meted out against women and children in Liberia which makes me feel empathy for these women to advocate and defend them. Women and girls are still often denied of their rights because of gender t.
