Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice

Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice (WIGJ) is an international women’s human rights organization advocating for gender-inclusive justice and working towards an effective and independent International Criminal Court (ICC). They are based in The Hague, the Netherlands, the seat of the ICC, in order to advocate for inclusion of gender based crimes in the investigations and prosecutions of the ICC and to promote the rights of women victims/survivors of armed conflict throughout the justice process including through the Trust Fund for Victims. WIGJ advocates for the use of international treaties, specifically the Rome Statute of the ICC, to advance women’s rights and gender equality domestically.
