Pathway to Gender Justice

For nearly five decades, the National Women’s Law Center has been on the forefront of championing policies and laws that help women and girls achieve their fullest potential throughout their lives and in all sectors. In the beginning, we fought to expand possibilities for women, girls, and families through legal battles and policy fights and now we anchor advocacy for women, girls, and families in the era of #MeToo and #TIMESUP. In the face of Trump’s unrelenting attacks, we have honed our formidable legal, policy, and cultural organizing expertise on the local, state, and national levels to serve on the frontlines of gender justice and to protect and advance our communities’ needs in the upcoming 2020 presidential electionOur goal is to drive a national conversation that will ensure positive change in 2021 for women, girls, and families.
