About the World Courts of Women
The World Courts of Women are public hearings that give a forum to those who are traditionally excluded from formal political and legal proceedings. The 2013 World Court in Philadelphia will focus on poverty and economic inequality in the United States, particularly the injustices that poor and working class women face. Activists from all over the country will gather to share testimonies of personal experience, analyses, skill-sharing and strategizing to create a more just present. The World Courts aim to educate and raise awareness, record injustice and human rights violations, give voice to marginalized women, and develop alternative visions and strategies for the future.
