National Women’s Law Center

Since 1972, the Center has expanded the possibilities for women and girls in the country. The Center uses the law in all its forms: getting new laws on the books and enforced; litigating ground-breaking cases in state and federal courts all the way to the Supreme Court; and educating the public about ways to make the law and public policies work for women and their families. An experienced staff of more than 50 takes on the issues that cut to the core of women's and girls' lives in education, employment, family economic security, and health -- with special attention given to the needs of low-income women and their families. The Center has an experienced, committed staff of over 80 who tackle the most important challenges facing women and their families. Through research, analysis, advocacy and public education, we win policy changes that improve the lives of women and families. Because of the Center’s work, a woman in an office building or an Army tank has more protection against discrimination and more opportunity than ever before. A high school or college student has more chances to play sports and reap the benefits.  And a family has better access to affordable health coverage.
