The “160 Girls” project is a legal initiative that aims to achieve justice and protect against rape for all girls in Kenya. The 160 Girls project will initiate litigation to secure legal remedies ordering the state to enforce existing laws in Kenya to protect girls from sexual violence and to hold rapists accountable.
The project will mobilize the law to secure concrete change for women and girls who currently experience some of the most appalling forms of violence in the world today.

This evening will also include an address by Dr. Elizabeth Archampong, Vice-Dean of Law at Kwame Nkrumah University, Ghana, [and former Osgoode student!] and a video launch of a mini-documentary on the 160 Girls, created by award-winning filmmaker Andrea Dorfman.
