The State of Female Justice in Kenya presented by One Billion Rising Kenya
Date: March 7, 2014
Venue: Alliance Française Auditorium
One billion rising is an all-inclusive, non partisan group working to address impunity and the lack of accountability as significant factors in the perpetuation of violence against women.
This Forum will focus attention on issues of justice for survivors of gender violence and how to end the rampant impunity. One Billion Rising is motivated by the belief that the justice system affects citizens’ lives in a multitude of ways and that the contributions of an engaged populace are necessary for a strong community.
