On 7 December 2017, the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice hosted the global launch of the Gender Justice Legacy Wall (Legacy Wall) which celebrates and honours some of the women and men who have contributed to advances in the gender justice field over the past 125 years.
The Legacy Wall recognises 151 judges, prosecutors, advocates, victims, witnesses, politicians, diplomats academics, grassroots and international organisations and United Nations personnel who have contributed to raising awareness about violence against women including conflict-related sexual violence, and who have contributed to establishing and expanding justice for victims of these crimes.
The Legacy Wall represents an enduring tribute honouring the expertise, vision and inspired action of women and men from different millennia, regions and sectors which transformed our world and inspired future generations.
