Nominations for the Emma Humphreys Memorial Prize and Centre for Women’s Justice Award 2022 closed on Friday 16th September 2022.
The awards are for work done to advance the rights of women and girls, through raising awareness, campaigning and/or bringing legal challenges. Nominees should be individual women or women’s groups working specifically for the benefit of women and/or girls.
Given the damaging effect of prostitution on Emma Humphreys’ life and her own uncompromising opposition to the sex industry, we will not consider nominees who do not share this perspective.
- The individual woman should be someone who, through writing or campaigning, has sought to raise awareness of violence against women and children.
- The individual woman should be someone who has brought, defended, campaigned around or in some other way assisted in a legal case which has had a wider impact and/or raised awareness of violence against women and children.
- The group or organisation should have done important work in raising awareness of violence against women and children, and have sought to bring about change.
- The group should have brought, defended, campaigned around or in some other way assisted on a legal case which has had a wider impact and/or raised awareness of violence against women and children.
All nominations are initially submitted to the EHMP organising group. The group uses the above criteria to decide on a shortlist, which they then submit to a panel of judges for final consideration. The judges’ names are on the website.
The judges may give consideration to the issue that your nominee is working on. They may prioritise an issue that they consider to be of current political importance or that has been particularly neglected.
