Ms. Rahman Speaks at UN CSW Parallel Event: “Engaging Pro Bono Legal Resources for Women’s Empowerment”
March 19, 2016
Six years ago, economic conditions and the unprecedented response of attorneys to meet the needs of poor and vulnerable populations motivated the ABA to commemorate the vital contributions of pro bono lawyers. Today this need is even greater and unequivocally global, as legal and business systems around the world are increasingly interconnected and interdependent. Pro bono legal services are critically needed to protect and advance human rights within and beyond U.S. borders, specifically for women. On March 19, 2016, KARAMAH is co-sponsoring the panel discussion “Pro Bono Legal Services for Women’s Empowerment.” The event is organized in conjunction with the international Action Network for Gender Equity and Law, IANGEL and AIDS Free World. Speakers at this panel will be: Aisha Rahman , KARAMAH’s Executive Director Mary Wolverton, IANGEL Board Member Seth Earn, AIDS Free World Legal Advisor
