GJC Participates in Third Annual Women Law Summit at the NYU School of Law, titled, "Women in Conflict: Gender, Violence, and Peacekeeping"
Friday, 20 February, 2015 at 11:30am - 5:15pm
On February 20th, NYU School of Law held its third annual women's law summit which coincided with the 15th anniversary of UN Resolution 1325. The Summit sought to educate participants about women's roles within conflict and their various means of empowerment, especially within the legal system. The all-female panels were composed of practicing lawyers, doctors, academics, and theorists. GJC founder and president Janet Benshoof gave the keynote address, highlighting the organizations projects, such as a campaign for the prosecution of rape as a prohibited weapon, and a campaign seeking the provision of abortions for women in conflict. Further, GJC, who advocates "power, not pity," was referenced several times throughout the following panels, as speakers detailed the ways in which women might act in conflict. Akila Radhakrishnan, legal director of GJC sat on the final panel about women and the transformation of the legal space, where she spoke on the opportunity for transforming women's rights in Burma.
