About

The Feminist Legal Clinic is an Australian legal practice that focuses on providing support to feminist groups, organisations and services and the women who access them. Our capacity to take on casework is limited but we provide information and targeted referral to many women and organisations. Our principal solicitor has worked as a lawyer for over 25 years across a range of free legal services, largely within the community sector. We meet within an informal and family friendly environment with flexible hours.

We are also the Australian country contact for the Women’s Declaration International and  work on law reform submissions and  community legal education projects to protect and promote women’s sex-based rights.

One thought on “About”

  1. Thank you for all the advocacy you do for women’s sex-based rights. It must feel so hard and discouraging sometimes, but I hope you realise the difference you make for so many women just by speaking up and setting an example of courage and integrity. I’m in a workplace where these issues are basically impossible to talk about, and the strain of keeping my mouth shut is really hard on my mental health and sense of self-worth. It makes a difference to know there are women like you out there.
