The presence of Jordanian women in the judiciary was not a luxury, or consolation award, this is a sector in which there is no place for compliments, and only the best and most capable can enter. While Taghreed Hikmat was the first woman appointed as a judge in the Jordanian in 1996, the judiciary today includes about 250 female judges out of 1000.
“Women in the Judiciary: Achievements and Aspirations” was the title of the dialogue session organized by the Al-Nahda Women’s Network last Wednesday, as part of the “Wednesday Dialogue” series. The speakers included the Director-General of the Judicial Institute, Judge Dr. Nawal Al-Jawhari, and the President of the Amman Court, Judge Iman Al-Qatarneh, and the dialogue was moderated by Adv. Taghreed Al Dughmi.
