Around the world today, 8 March, we are celebrating the social, political, economic and cultural achievements of women all over the globe. This year the theme of the campaign is #BreakTheBias and we are determined to accelerate women’s equality.
At 2TG we champion equality and celebrate those who are advocates for gender parity. We are delighted that our two outstanding and newly appointed Silks in the 2022 list, Lucy Wyles and Rehana Azib, are both women. This now means that almost 40% of our Queen’s Counsel are women. Over 40% of our members and staff are women. There is still more to be done!
We are delighted to be hosting a breakfast panel on Thursday 10th March with Baroness Helena Kennedy, Judge Ferozan Quasimi and Caroline Harrison KC in celebration of International Women’s Day and the International Bar Association of Human Rights Initiative’s efforts to support Afghan Women Judges. Please register your attendance here.
Happy International Women’s Day 2022!
