Justice Catherine Davani

Wednesday, 6 March 2013
6.00pm for 6.30pm start 

Justice Davani has 28 years of legal experience in Papua New Guinea, in the Common Law Jurisdiction and also, the Civil Law (European). She was appointed as a Judge to the National Court and was the first woman appointed to the Supreme Courts of Papua New Guinea in March 2001, after practicing law at both the public and private bar in Papua New Guinea, for 18 years, practicing mostly in the civil litigation area.

Justice Davani will be speaking on the International Women's Day theme of 'Ending Violence Against Women' and discussing her experiences within the legal system in Papua New Guinea. 

This year, funds raised during the International Women’s Day campaign will go towards the Critical Services Initiative in Papua New Guinea.

UN Women launched the Critical Services Initiative in 2011.  The Initiative’s aim is to achieve universal access for all women and girls who have experienced gender-based violence to a core set of critical services in countries across the globe.  Money raised by the Initiative will assist nations in improving the quality of, and access to, critical services.  Funds raised by the Initiative will enable nations to respond to violence against women by providing:

·         immediate, free and universal access to key services

·         education ensuring women know where and how to access services; and

·         documentation of cases and regional mapping of key services
