Justice is the foundation for gender equality and women’s empowerment. Inequality, discrimination and exclusion remain severe obstacles to human development in Nigeria. Women living in poverty and marginalized groups may not be aware of their legal rights and often lack legal protection and access to mechanisms to remedy their grievances, resulting in increased vulnerability.

All women need to be able to turn to fair, effective institutions to access justice and essential services. Without these, instability and injustice spread, and discrimination is perpetuated. In Nigeria, a variety of institutions continue to fail women and girls, especially through impunity for gender-based violence. WIN is calling on governments to show strong commitment and accelerate actions and policies to increase women’s access to justice and foster a responsive justice system that advances women’s equal rights, opportunity and participation.
