National Women's Law Center
The National Women’s Law Center fights for gender justice—in the courts, in public policy, and in our society—working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls. They use the law in all its forms to change culture and drive solutions to the gender inequity that shapes our society and tear down the barriers that harm all of us—especially those who face multiple forms of discrimination, including women of color, LGBTQ+ people, and low-income women and families.
