Assange is wanted for questioning in connection with two accounts of sexual molestation and one alleged rape in August 2010 when the Australian national visited Sweden to give a lecture.
The women's lawyer is the former gender equality ombudsman, Claes Borgström.
"Waiting has been an ordeal for them," he told Swedish Radio.
"But they are of course relieved that he might be charged, and that he might have to take responsibility for assaulting them," he added.
Assange has denied all charges saying they are politically motivated due to his organisation's adversarial relationship to several powerful nations.
He has repeatedly said he fears being transferred to the US from Sweden if he is detained.
