Podcast: The Equality Effect & justice for young girls in Africa

In August, Fiona Sampson was named one of Canadian Lawyer's Top 25 most influential lawyers. She's the executive director of The Equality Effect,  a non-profit charity that uses international human rights law to pursue justice for women and girls around the world.

Recently, Tim Nixon, director of sustainability at Thomson Reuters, caught up with Fiona Sampson to talk to her about the work of the Equality Effect including its newest project in Malawi that is also seeking justice for victims of rape.

You can listen to the interview on the podcast posted on Thomson Reuters Legal Currents blog.
