End Male Violence Against Women and Girls

"Charlotte is never shy of helping us test the boundaries of the law, or of tackling a relatively new form of domestic abuse, widespread image-based abuse (revenge porn), or raising novel arguments arising under the Equality Act, which have yet to be tested in court"

Georgina Calvert-Lee, Senior Counsel, McAllister and Olivarius

Advocating for legal reforms to advance gender equality and end discrimination under the law. 

Charlotte is passionately committed to using the law as a tool to further gender equality and eliminate discrimination against women. The law is a powerful force to engender social change. An advocate for legal change, Charlotte was instrumental in the criminalisation of forced marriage and the introduction of FGM Protection Orders, all of which have provided vulnerable women and girls with legal redress and protection.

We Need Everyone


As a leading feminist, lawyer and activist Dr Proudman is happy to announce her first non-profit, WomenNOW. A policy advocacy organisation working to eliminate discrimination against women and girls.

Domestic abuse and gender discrimination

Charlotte’s commitment to raising judicial understanding of domestic abuse and gender discrimination in the family and immigration courts is well known and her fearlessness in calling out the manifest shortcomings of the treatment of gender-related abuse in the media, the courts and in the profession is unparalleled.

WomenNOW will be a voice for all women and girls who need us. Only by listening to others, their trauma, abuse and past experiences can we begin to take steps to ensure the safety of all women and girls. WomenNOW will challenge those accountable be that the state, men in high power positions, an abusive partner or the law itself,  and we will fight for justice and safety.
