For a long time, I had been encouraged by women in the network to write up the story of WLD so that current members of the WLD networks in Asia, Africa and Latin America could know more about Women, Law and Development as a global development.
I chose to present the story first in the form of a website. A book version will appear later this year. The website tells the story in words, photographs and documents. It begins prior to the Nairobi conference in 1985 with a project on women and law in Central America in 1979. Out of that experience came ideas that served as an organizing framework for the 1985 Nairobi Third World Forum on Women, Law and Development. The analysis and recommendations formulated at the WLD Nairobi Forum were truly visionary and led to organizing the regional networks, and finally Women, Law and Development International.
I consider this website something of a work in progress and welcome comments, suggestions--or corrections, if I got something wrong.
I invite anyone who might be able to add to this history with their own photos or stories to share them with us. And I also ask for assistance in identifying missing names of people in the photos.
I hope you will enjoy reading this story. Please add comments below or write me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
