Inaugural President of SAWL
Ms. Farideh’s sojourn in the US (where she completed a Masters’ degree in law) made her realise that it was essential for women to be united and organised if we wanted to take an equal place with men in society. She gathered sixteen other women lawyers and law graduates to form a Protem Committee; worked out the Constitution and SAWL was registered on 22 May 1974.
