Vision and Mission

WCLAC’s vision is to see empowered women living in a just and equal Palestinian society where they enjoy all of their human rights.
WCLAC is a Palestinian, feminist, non-governmental organisation that works to protect and promote women’s human rights within the framework of international human rights mechanisms and standards. This is to be undertaken through monitoring, documentation and advocacy at the local and international levels; providing social and legal services to women victims of violence and those whose human rights have been violated; undertaking awareness, advocacy, training and legal reform programmes that ensure gender equality; developing the capacity of grassroots organisations and volunteer groups, all within the framework of an effective organisation that works in a complementary way through the various programme and administrative units and regional offices whose specialised and highly-qualified staff are committed to the vision and mission of the Centre.
