Join us online for an Evening for Gender Justice
ABOUT THE EVENT
The National Women’s Law Center Annual Gala is one of D.C.’s most notable gatherings of policymakers, influencers, and thought leaders working at the intersection of law, policy, and culture change. With over 1,000 attendees from the women’s, civil rights, corporate, philanthropic, and legal communities, the gala shines a light on the most pressing gender justice issues of our time, including Title IX, sexual harassment and violence, reproductive rights and health, equal pay, access to high-quality child care, and economic security for women, their families, and their communities. The extraordinary evening offers a unique opportunity to hear from changemakers across sectors who are fighting to build a country that is equitable for all women, girls, and those across the gender spectrum. Though our event will remain virtual again this year the experience will still be the same: to bring the most conscientious and committed gender justice champions together, mark how far we’ve come, and shine a light on the path forward.
Forty-nine years ago, the National Women’s Law Center was created to promote the fundamental belief that women and girls have the right to live, learn, and work with safety, dignity, and equality. Since then, our work has tackled the most urgent gender justice issues and advanced legal, policy, and cultural changes to last generations. Against the backdrop of a national reckoning with racial injustice, paired with a global public health disaster that saw women predominantly on the front lines, the Center’s decades-long work is paving the way to move our country from relief to recovery to prosperity.
Resources raised through this event are an investment in the Law Center’s work to break down the barriers that harm everyone—especially those who face multiple forms of discrimination, including women of color, LGBTQ people, and low-income women and families.
