I would draw the committee's attention to the policy itself. There are, as you know, a number of action areas. Under the fifth action area, which speaks of inclusive governance, one of the priorities is ensuring that the rule of law is upheld. There is a statement contained in the policy, which we think is very much on point.
Reform of the judicial system is also required to ensure that women and girls have equal access to justice, including equal protection of their rights by state institutions such as the police, prosecutors,...and courts.... Special measures may be needed to protect and support women's rights defenders who are subject to ongoing intimidation, violence and abuse.
True justice for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence cannot be achieved when perpetrators are not held to account.
That's a very appropriate description of the role that we would see International Justice Mission playing in a society: ensuring that the most vulnerable members of society, who unfortunately often are women and children, experience equal access to justice and experience equal protection of the law as well.
