Marriott Marquis | Washington, DC

Reception:  6:00pm  |  Dinner & Program:  7:00pm

The National Women’s Law Center gala is the premier event recognizing women at the center of law, policy and culture change. Attended by well over 1,000 policy makers and leaders from the women’s, civil rights, corporate, philanthropic and legal communities, the Law Center’s annual gala highlights changemakers across sectors who are fighting to build a country in which women and girls can live, work, and learn with dignity, equity, and bodily autonomy.

Resources raised through this event support the Law Center’s work on the most pressing gender justice issues of our time, including reproductive rights, child care, sexual harassment in the workplace, Title IX, equal pay, and economic security for families and communities.
