Lawyer and Women’s Rights Defender Azza Soliman is a finalist for the 2017 Allard Prize for International Integrity.

Soliman is a co-founder of the Center for Egyptian Women’s Legal Assistance and has dedicated her life to fighting corruption and injustice faced by Egyptian women in both the private sphere and the judicial system.

She has worked to support women’s access to justice by using progressive interpretations of religion to influence legislation and combat the monopoly and corruption of religious institutions.
