This article reviews the role that a high profile case of alleged domestic violence played in providing Georgian civil society and Parliamentary allies with unprecedented opportunities to campaign for the release of a woman wrongly accused of murder, whilst raising public awareness and precipitating a challenge to the law. Drawing on interviews with a range of primary stakeholders involved in bringing about the legal change, the article considers the factors that made this advocacy success possible, and the implications of this for women throughout Georgia.
