National Partnership for Women & Families

Judges & Supreme Court

Judges are the gatekeepers of your fundamental rights and, every year, courts decide cases that touch women’s lives.

The National Partnership has a long history of supporting U.S. Supreme Court and other judicial nominees who support privacy and equal justice – and challenging those who do not.

We also speak out about Supreme Court cases that involve discrimination, sexual harassment, a woman’s right to make her own reproductive health decisions, equal and full application of the Family and Medical Leave Act, and other critical issues.

With your help, we will continue this critical work to ensure that the Supreme Court and the lower courts are committed to equal justice for all Americans.
