Sri Lankan Quazi Courts, Where are the Women Judges?

We collaborated with the Muslim Personal Law Reform Action Group (MPLRAG) to hold a briefing for the media and other key stakeholders titled ‘Sri Lankan Quazi Courts, Where are the Women Judges?’ on the 6th of November 2019.

Our collective demand was that the next Sri Lankan President, whoever they may be, should prioritize the reforms to Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act, including the appointment of women for quazi positions.
