Dignity, Equality, and Security

These words have specific protections in law, but are equally contested in law. Law and the courts is a place where everything needs to be defined and scaled into a test that judges can apply to a particular situation.

The Barbra Schlifer Clinic is a resource on legal issues relevant to victims of violence.  We raise our voice on a number of important legal issues so that all women can build lives free from violence, and provide expertise to other community agencies working with women experiencing violence.

The Schlifer Clinic:

“Any erosion of access to justice for a sexual assault victim
makes all women more vulnerable to attack.”
