Women in law

Ebrahim and Rehana Parker with Asha and Manoj Singhania cut the ribbon to launch the awards.

Entries are now open for people to nominate women in the legal sector who work hard, but are not recognised for their efforts. The Women in Law Awards (WOZA), was launched at the Pepper Club Hotel in Loop Street, in the presence of female attorneys from all over South Africa. WOZA was launched to honour and celebrate the achievements of female legal practitioners, who have made a difference in the legal profession, by bringing together legal practitioners, in-house legal counsel, thought leaders, innovators, along with leaders from government and academia. The WOZA awards was the brainchild of Rehana Khan Parker, of Rehana Khan Parker and Associates in Grassy Park, who said the idea came to her while she attended a law summit, where the number of female attorneys were very low.
