Women and Law in Southern Africa (WLSA) Zambia

Lusaka, Zambia
Joined February 2012
Presence in: Zambia

Women and Law in Southern Africa (WLSA) Zambia is part of a regional organization with offices in seven countries in the region. The organization was set up in 1989 by female lecturers in Southern African Universities to respond to the socio-legal needs of women in the region and to develop women’s rights methodologies.

Our mission is to contribute to the socio- economic political and legal advancement of women specifically within southern african countries and this is achieved though collaborative strategic and action oriented research in the socio- legal field and lobbying for legal reforms and policy changes on laws and practices which discriminate and disadvantage women.
