Judges have an affirmative ethical responsibility to act so that access to justice becomes a reality. In their presentations IAWJ judges demonstrated how they, by being vigilant, creative and practical, take steps to address obstacles that many women and girls face in the courtroom and in asserting their rights. - President-Elect Hon. Vanessa Ruiz
"The IAWJ is a pillar to the national women judges associations, which feel strengthened by its presence and support." - Justice Nazum Ara Sultana, Bangaldesh
"We [the Syrian judges] feel that we lost our family in Syria because of the war, but Allah has given us a new family in the IAWJ."
