National Partnership for Women & Families

Workplace Fairness

You should not be paid less than a man for doing the same work. You should not get fired or lose a promotion because you’re pregnant. And you should never have to experience sexual harassment at work. It’s not right, but discrimination is common in the 21st century workplace.

Too many women still face obstacles that make it difficult for them to succeed. At the same time, many women are unaware of their legal rights or what to do if they believe their rights have been violated.

This is a serious concern for all women and particularly for low-income women, women moving from welfare to work, and others living on the economic margins.

The National Partnership pushes for vigorous enforcement of employment discrimination laws and expanded job opportunities for women. We educate women about their legal rights, and inform the public about the ways discrimination harms families and our economy.

The bottom line: We want you to succeed and never experience discrimination (again).
