Our country’s most pressing challenges — poverty, violence, discrimination — will be solved by transforming our communities into places where every woman and girl can lead. We envision a world where work and school are guaranteed places of safety and promise; where every student can grow to their fullest potential; where all women have the economic security they need to care for themselves, their families, and their communities.
Together, we’re building a world of true gender justice, where everyone has equal opportunity to thrive.
When it comes to gender justice, we leave no stone unturned. We enforce civil rights laws in court, fight to end sexual violence in our schools and workplaces, provide free legal advice and counseling to those who need it, educate folks on their legal rights, and partner with other advocacy organizations to ensure we’re addressing the most pressing social justice issues impacting each of our communities.

By combining forces with other advocacy organizations and community leaders nationwide, we’re tackling some of the biggest gender justice issues facing our country today. Our initiatives for workplace justice and economic security fight for policy reform and innovative laws that give every worker an opportunity to thrive in safe, equitable, discrimination-free work environments. In schools, our Initiative to End Sexual Violence in Education features the nation’s first pro bono network of volunteer attorneys dedicated to providing free legal help to student survivors of sexual assault and harassment.
