- Feminist organisation and Professional association
Incorporated in 1996 as a not-for-profit association, Victorian Women Lawyers (VWL) is the peak representative body of women lawyers in Victoria, and a recognised organisation of Australian Women Lawyers. Ms Deanne Weir was appointed forst convenor.
One of VWL's key objectives is to promote the understanding and support of women's legal and human rights. We work to fulfil that objective through a variety of means, including by identifying, highlighting and eradicating discrimination against women in law and in the legal system, as well as by seeking to achieve justice and equality for all women.
