Holding the state to account for violence against women and girls
The Centre for Women’s Justice is a new charity, founded in 2016. We aim to bring together specialist lawyers, academics and other experts in the field of violence against women, with those working on the frontline as activists, survivors and service providers to bring strategic law challenges and ensure access to justice for victims of male violence.

Emma Humphreys was a survivor, writer, and campaigner. Her case was a turning point in feminist attempts to change the law on murder and provocation.
