After 12 years with Rights of Women and 8 years leading the organisation, our Director, Emma Scott, will be leaving her post in June 2016 and we have begun our search for her successor.
Emma says “Having spent the past year reflecting on Rights of Women’s first 40 years, I am incredibly proud of the work we have done collectively as an organisation and with our partners to ensure women’s access to the law and their legal remedies and to address violence against women. However, the time has come for me to move on to new adventures and to hand over the reigns of this amazing organisation to someone else.”
Chair of our Board of Trustees, Annie Hedge, says “The Board and staff team have spent a great deal of time recently thinking about the challenges ahead for women’s access to justice and how as an organisation we need to address them. We are looking for a new Director who shares our commitment to women’s equality and to providing specialist legal advice and support services for women by women and, importantly, who has the drive and determination to take us forward into our next 40 years.”
