International Action Network for Gender Equity & Law

IANGEL is an international network of lawyers who believe in gender equality and justice for all people.  A new concept in pro bono work, we harness the power of volunteer lawyers, and use it to promote and help secure equity and  rights  for women and girls locally, nationally, and around the world.
