Zimbabwe Women Lawyers Association (ZWLA) is an association of women lawyers established in 1992 which has been providing legal services to marginalised women and children while at the same time campaigning for laws and policies that protect their rights.

The organisation's mission is to defend the rights of women and children. It provides legal aid and education to millions of women and their communities. They also actively campaign on issues that affect women’s rights, such as domestic violence laws, to make sure they're brought to the forefront of political debate. And they spread awareness of women's rights law so people can support women experiencing violence and other human rights violations.

Womankind is working with ZWLA to provide legal services to women with cases on domestic violence, divorce, child support, inheritance and property disputes as well as supporting the implementation of women’s rights laws.
