Nonprofit organization Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development

APWLD developed from dialogues among Asia Pacific women lawyers, social scientists, and activists, which began at the 1985 Third World Forum on Women, held in Nairobi, Kenya. The women participating in the dialogues recognized that while the law is used as an instrument of state control over resources, rights, and even women’s bodies, it can also be used to help effect political and socio-economic changes in our societies.
