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 many more chances to play sports and reap the benefits. A family has better access to affordable health coverage. And an older woman is more likely to have economic security in her retirement.
The Center has won landmark advances to improve the lives of women for more than 40 years. Recent accomplishments range from protecting pregnant workers to raising the minimum wage in states across the country.
