Women in legal profession have made strides in leadership but challenges still exist

Women in the legal profession in Kenya have made great strides in leadership but challenges still exist, a new report launched by Chief Justice Martha Koome shows.

The findings by the Institute for African Women in Law show that women can make a difference in changing institutional structures and cultures, promote and expand equal opportunities for women and other vulnerable groups to access justice

During a fireside chat with IAWL’s Executive Director, Prof. Jarpa Dawuni, CJ Koome said she stands for the independence of the Judiciary, and wishes to create an institution that can support Kenya’s democracy.

Professor Dawuni, who established the Institute in 2015, says her vision is to enhance the capacity of women in law and leadership across the African continent and in the Diaspora.
