Women's Legal Centre

The Women’s Legal Centre (WLC) is a non-profit law centre that seeks to achieve equality for women, particularly black women through impact based litigation, the provision of free legal advice, legal support to advocacy campaigns run by other organizations (which fall within the Centre’s objectives) and training that ensures people know and understand the impact of judgements of the courts on the subject of women’s rights.

The WLC also provides legal advice to the other non-governmental women’s organizations nationally and in Africa. 

The WLC is staffed by attorneys, candidate attorneys, paralegals and a legal adviser who specialize in gender law and have extensive litigation experience. The WLC is based in Cape Town, with an office in Johannesburg, and a satellite office in Khayelitsha.

The Centre has won several precedent setting cases that have improved women’s access to justice in South Africa.
