The National Association of Women and the Law (NAWL) is an incorporated not-for-profit feminist organization that promotes the equality rights of Canadian women through legal education, research, and law reform advocacy.
Created at a conference held at the University of Windsor law school in 1974. Since then NAWL has used its unique research and educational strategies to raise public awareness about legal issues affecting women.
Has played a major role in the following milestones towards Canadian women's equality:

  • inclusion of Sections 15 and 28 in the Charter of Rights & Freedoms,
  • amendments to sexual assault laws,
  • positive changes to family law and to the Divorce Act,
  • rape shield legislation, and
  • criminal harassment legislation.
