Bearing the “brunt of the war” in Uganda, women now need justice

Women in northern Uganda, who have borne the brunt of a 20-year war, now need full access to justice and their basic rights for society to make a full recovery.

That's the view of Uganda's Chief Justice, Bart Magunda Katureebe, speaking at a High-Level meeting on Women's Access to Justice at UN Headquarters in New York.

He explained that while the constitution protects women, parliament needed to put laws in place to make those provisions operational.

He noted that women and girls needed legal pathways to create "an avenue for stability, and eventually for peace."

Just before the meeting began, Uganda's Chief Justice told Liz Scaffidi about the challenges women are facing in the region.
