Despite many strides towards equality, women across the world suffer discrimination either directly or indirectly in all spheres of their lives. They suffer domestic violence including sexual abuse within homes and families. In many countries they do not have equal rights to property – hereditary or matrimonial. They also lose in the public sphere with the labour standards supporting the life styles of men in most parts of the world. Women often have lower literacy rates, higher malnutrition, lesser income, and more temporary and unskilled or semi-skilled work.  Mainstreaming of gender issues to promote equality is a basic component of just legal education and GAJE. Provision of equal representation of women from all parts of the world on the steering committee of GAJE is just one example of the sensitivity of GAJE and its members to equality of women.
