The Tshwaranang Legal Advocacy Centre to End Violence against Women (TLAC) was established in 1996 to eradicate the victimization of women by the legal system, and to make the law a vehicle of social change for women.
TLAC played a key role in the development of the Domestic Violence Act, as a member on the project committee of the South African Law Reform Commission that drafted the Bill.
TLAC has undergone a range of work since its inception, including training and education, advocacy and research. In 2005, TLAC established a legal services unit that provides information and legal advice and assistance to women who are survivors of gender based violence, including domestic violence and rape.
TLAC has participated as a member of the National Working Group on Sexual Offences since the group was formed.
