International Action Network for Gender Equity & Law

International Action Network for Gender Equity & Law IANGEL connects volunteer lawyers, law firms, and bar associations to strengthen and support those who are working against gender bias and oppression in the US and around the world.

We are an international network of lawyers harnessing the power of volunteer lawyers to fight for equal rights and the human dignity of women and girls around the world. We believe in a world where all people have the same rights to basic human dignity, fairness, and self-determination, regardless of gender. We believe in equal economic opportunity, including the right to equal pay, fair pay, the right to education, and equal property and inheritance rights. We believe that women are entitled to personal dignity, privacy, and autonomy, including access to birth control and reproductive rights, the right to choose whom to marry and whether to divorce, and the right to live freely and without physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. We believe that the individuals and organizations working to protect women’s rights, to confront gender bias, and to reform legal and cultural barriers to full and equal participation of women in society should not want for resources. We believe that connecting volunteer lawyers to the cause of gender equity will build a stronger movement for justice worldwide. Our Team. IANGEL is lead by a diverse and dedicated team of women lawyers from around the world. Our Board of Directors is led by our founder and president, Nancy J. Newman. Our Approach. The movement for gender equity cannot afford to waste the talent, skills and energy of anyone who desires to work on this cause. Around the country and around the world, lawyers and law firms have the willingness and desire to donate their time and their skills as writers, thinkers, and advocates, to join the fight against unfair laws and discriminatory practices, but have few opportunities to do so. At the same time, those on the front lines of the struggle for justice are invariably stretched thin by the challenges of trying to do too much with too little. IANGEL changes this dynamic by: Creating the Network Creating and maintaining a network of lawyers, law firms, and bar associations, desiring to use their skills, resources, talent, and influence, to promote gender equity and fight oppression; Developing the Connections Developing and building connections with individuals, public interest law firms, and organizations around the world who promote or protect the legal rights of women and girls Facilitating Deployment Facilitating the effective deployment of pro bono legal services and international advocacy to the cause of equal rights. Together, we are a vibrant network of people and organizations around the world, using skills, hearts, and minds to bend the arc of history toward justice.

🚨 BREAKING: the Trump admin published a new proposed rule to extend the #GlobalGagRule to global health contracts. This is yet another unprecedented expansion of a harmful policy - and amidst the #COVID19 pandemic. This has life-altering consequences for millions and will further widen the gap to access #SRH services. #NoGagRule
