Centre for Women's Justice

About Us

Centre for Women’s Justice (CWJ) is a thriving and rapidly expanding legal charity which has undertaken a wide range of highly publicised strategic legal challenges and collaborative projects through partnerships with women’s sector organisations.

Our Mission – To hold the state to account to challenge discrimination in the justice system around male violence against women and girls.

Our areas of work include:

1. Strategic litigation – we bring legal challenges which have the potential to effect broader changes in society
2. Training and empowering frontline women’s sector organisations – we improve confidence and legal knowledge of those working directly with survivors of male violence
3. Facilitating access to justice – working collaboratively with women’s sector organisations and lawyers with expertise in violence against women
4. Monitoring and challenging trends in policy, practice and men’s use of the law as it impacts on violence against women and girls.
5. Raising awareness – we have fast become the go-to organisation for advice and media comment on legal issues around male violence


We believe that:

• All women have an equal right to access justice and to be safe
• Male violence is not inevitable: it can be eradicated
• Women resist male violence but are blamed for it
• All women and girls can be subject to male violence regardless of their socioeconomic and cultural position
• Male violence may take different forms in different contexts, so opportunities for resistance may differ

Key principles underlying our approach:
• Work with the client not for the client, by listening and responding to each woman’s individual experience
• Work collaboratively with frontline organisations and campaigns
• A commitment to anti-oppression politics
