Association des Juristes Maliennes (AJM)
The AJM met for the first time at the beginning of our second stay in Bamako in July 2005. To be a member of this association, one must be a woman lawyer that is to say for example a lawyer, a judge, notary ... AJM is a corporate association, which belongs to the World Organization of Women Lawyers. This association works closely with ODEF (Observatory of Children's Rights and Women), which also accepts women from all socio-professional horizon. AJM works to assist women in their legal and administrative procedures and also to popularize legislation for women to let them know their rights. They work towards and organize replay discriminatory texts in the light of international instruments that will hopefully change the Malian law towards greater gender equality / women.
