Administrative / Biographical History

See the history of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (United Kingdom section); c. 1929-fl. 1993

Roxane Arnold (fl.1950-1993) was a member of the Six Point Group and Treasurer of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (UK section).

The International Federation of Women Lawyers (c.1929-fl.1993) was established in 1929 in Paris by a group of European women lawyers. Their aim was to improve the status of women in the legal profession and to foster social networks. The Federation developed national groups across the world, including a United Kingdom (UK) section, with the international headquarters remaining in Paris. By the 1990s the Federation also worked to support implementation of the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights. The UK section held seminars and social events and members attended international congresses and conferences.
