AFELL Kicks Off 1st Nat’l Convention Activities …Highlights Multi-Dimensional Violence

The Association of Female Lawyers of Liberia (AFELL) has extended its calls that the battle against all forms of violence should be tackled collectively and swiftly.
AFELL’s president Philomena T. Williams revealed that with the lack of the effectiveness of activism, multi-dimensional violence in the nation has intensified and therefore needs holistic attention.
She made the assertion when members of the Association along with other partners including the Female Journalists Association of Liberia (FeJAL) paraded with messages against all forms of violence through the principal streets of Monrovia beginning from the Law Library on Ashmun Street on Saturday as activities commemorating AFELL’s first national convention to be held at the Temple of Justice this week.
Other activities of AFELL’s first convention which also demonstrates 29 years of the Association’s systemic advocacy, protecting and promoting the rights of women and children in Liberia will run from February 23-24, 2023.
At the Temple of Justice where the parade ended, AFELL’s prexy said with the support of international partners for 29 years AFELL has been systemic in its advocacy for the protection and promotion the rights of women and children while educating communities to know and exercise their rights.
Meanwhile, Atty Williams stated further that the Association will not relent in its advocacy because it is determined to prevent or end multi-dimensional violence against women and children.
She noted that AFELL has not only raised awareness on gender inequality, health risks of female genital mutilation, amended gender insensitive laws, but has also over the years represented indigents.
