Rights of Women (ROW) promotes the legal rights of women throughout England and Wales, with a particular focus on disadvantaged and vulnerable women that have experienced sexual and/ or domestic violence. The ATJF awarded £5000 to ROW in order to assist them in making a film that would aid women survivors of domestic violence to access justice. The film would help these women navigate the family law legal system, in particular those that are unable to access legal representation due to cuts in legal aid. The film is now being circulated by the Ministry of Justice as well as women’s organisations and VAWG specialists from the Crown Prosecution Service VAWG Expert Reference Group.
