The think tank

The African Legal Think Tank on Women’s Rights (ALTOWR) is a Continental Legal Institute performing research, consultancy, capacity building, provision of technical expertise and advocacy on women’s rights. 

We are independent of government, political parties and other interest groups, and our mission is to provide space for discussion, to design and develop new concepts of quality through our analytical, constructive and evidence-based legal research into social, political and economic issues that affect the rights of women and girls in Africa.  

Founded by Sodfa Daaji in April 2020 and officially launched in July 2020, the Think Tank is led by a Team of Volunteers and governed by a Board of Directors appointed to oversee our leadership, accountability and transparency.
