Who We Are

Global Policy Review is the law and policy division of the International Women’s Initiative (IWI). Created in early 2019, it has been established as a means to comprehensively analyse laws and policies impacting women’s rights the world over and pave the way for a more egalitarian society.

Our work predominantly focuses on raising awareness of women’s rights issues across the globe through policy and legal research, reports and lobbying efforts with an aim to educate the international community on the status of women’s rights abuse.  

In doing so, we strive to give a platform and support women in speaking out against injustice and lack of accountability within governance and legal mechanisms, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, language, religion and geographical location.

Courage calls to courage everywhere, and its voice cannot be denied.
