Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa
The Protocol offers significant potential to guarantee the rights of women, but in order to come into force it needed to be ratified by at least 15 countries.
On 26 October 2005 the Protocol received its 15th ratification, meaning the Protocol entered into force on 25 November 2005.

Legislative Advocacy Coalition on Violence Against Women (LACVAW) is a Coalition of diverse groups in civil society working on various aspects of women’s human rights, particularly, violence against women. The Coalition was formed in 2001, in response to the need to bring together and amplify the voices of NGOs across the country, particularly those that were proposing Bills at the State and National Assemblies on issues of domestic violence, harmful traditional practices and inheritance rights.
