The Women and International Law issue area reflects the breadth of the Society's work relating to women's rights, women as a subject of international law, gender perspectives on international law, and the role of women in the development of international law. Much of the work in this area is, of course, spearheaded by one of ASIL's most active interest groups, the Women in International Law Interest Group (or "WILIG"). ASIL President Lucy Reed has established "women and international law" as a theme of her 2008-2010 presidency, with a particular emphasis on issues relating to accountability for sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict settings.
