Abstract

The Commonwealth of Learning (COL), in partnership with the Centre for Research and Development Initiative (CERADI), implemented para-legal awareness training in rural areas of the Mchinji district in Malawi during 2019–22. The two organisations undertook a research study to understand the scope of women’s empowerment in asserting their rights and in dealing with the violation of those rights after they completed para-legal training. The findings from this systematic investigation serve as evidence of the capacity and confidence generated among women and girls in challenging unequal power relations and seeking change in their gender relations.
