WiLDAF was established in February 1990 in the vibrant city of Harare, Zimbabwe, at a critical juncture in the UN Decade for Women. The organization’s compelling goal was to combine development and legal approaches to increase the inRuence and voice of women everywhere. Picture a tapestry of connectivity, linking communities, nations, regions, and the global stage, all with the aim of championing women’s rights and empowerment.
