Think African Podcast ep 7: Fighting for the law in West Africa
African Arguments is delighted to partner with the Think African podcast series, created by Sound Africa in cooperation with Heinrich Böll Stiftung Cape Town. Think African examines the big questions that define the world from an unapologetically African point of view. Episodes are released twice a month and are hosted by Jedi Ramalapa, Editor in Chief of Sound Africa.
In episode seven, we talk about how research on legal and judicial processes has revealed biases in the treatment of women in courts both as witnesses, and accused. We speak to Criminal Justice and Human Rights Lawyer Sabrina Mahtani and explore how African women lawyers in West Africa are working to change those biases.
