Title of Presentation : Social Justice Towards Gender Equity: Securing Gender Justice
Names of all Presenters : Helene F. K. Namisi
Short Abstract : Social injustice is a concept relating to the unfairness or injustice of a society in its divisions of rewards and burdens and other incidental inequalities. Formal recognition that womens unequal status has rendered them vulnerable to human rights violations forms the basis of specially targeted interventions to bring equality and justice for women. Equality of opportunities and outcomes is paramount to ensure sustainable infrastructural developments for women and men alike. The National Legal Aid (and Awareness) Pilot Program (NALEAP) launched in 2008 by the Ministry of Justice, National Cohesion and Constitutional Affairs, seeks to improve access to justice in Kenya, especially among the poor, the marginalized and the vulnerable in society. While assessing the specific intervention adopted by NALEAP, this presentation aims to identify other appropriate interventions in terms of improving womens socio-economic status and the interlinkage between this and their access to justice.
