NWLC’s litigation efforts were in full swing across the Center throughout 2019. We are immensely proud of this work including winning significant court victories against the Trump Administration and engaging in intense settlement negotiations to better the lives of women and girls and for all to be free from sex discrimination. Our litigation work falls into three key categories.

  • Cases against entities such as schools and employers who are violating our nation’s Constitution or other civil rights laws and creating harm for women, girls and others who suffer sex discrimination.
  • Cases against the Trump Administration for its harmful and illegal rules and changes in policies.
  • Leading and joining amicus briefs in matters raising important legal questions, including matters supporting LGBTQ individuals, immigrants and others we know are crucial to include within the work of women’s rights and our larger fights against sex discrimination.

Some of our highlights are detailed by program area in this document.
