Judge Najla Ayoubi spoke at the Women as Agents of Change in the Rule of Law Symposia at the Rule of Law Collaborative at the University of South Carolina. She was joined by scholars and law practitioners to talk about specific strategies women have used in achieving the following goals: I) Human Rights Education for All Women; II) Access to Justice; and III) Good Governance; and IV) Participation and Leadership in the Justice Sector.
Judge Ayoubi shared her experiences from a practical and theoretical perspectives. She filled in the gaps of missing pieces of overall gender strategies in the rule of law sector as well as social resistance to change in society, link in Afghanistan, and law of political will to promote gender inclusion. She continued to highlight the achievements that there have been, finishing with recommendations in regard to the programs and target communities.
She posed the questions: What are we missing? Areas where we are still lacking. What is not being done that needs to be done in the communities you serve? What are the difficulties in engaging in this type of project?
