Help Us Fight Back Against Efforts to Roll Back Gender Justice

The Alabama Supreme Court just ruled that frozen embryos in test tubes should be considered children.

Our lawyers are waging strategic fights that make clear what is at stake for people who can become pregnant and seek to bolster our fundamental rights to control our lives, futures, and destinies.

All Topics

Racial Justice

We will never achieve equality and opportunity for women while systemic racism and sexism continue to put hurdles in the paths of women of color.

Breaking Stereotypes

Stereotypes about race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other personal characteristics shape how people perceive, interact with, and make decisions about others. For decades, the way groups of people have been portrayed by the media, popular culture, and public officials has led to biases—often unconscious—that can result in discrimination against women and people of color.

Equity in Education

All students deserve access to equal educational opportunities. However, girls of color face interconnected, structural barriers that threaten their success in school and beyond.

Race & Gender Wage Gaps

Comparing what women of color are paid to what white, non-Hispanic men make demonstrates the enormous economic impact of the double burden of sexism and racism.

Reproductive Justice

All of us deserve to make our own decisions about our bodies, health, sexuality, and  whether and when to have children with dignity and autonomy and to raise the family we have in a safe, healthy environment. But communities of color face a unique set of barriers—not only to abortion and birth control access but also to the ability to raise their families in safe, healthy environments.
