Economic Justice

We advance public policies that promote workplace and economic equity throughout women’s lives.

For millions of women, all it takes is one major life event — a new baby, a serious illness, losing a job, a family crisis, some unexpected emergency — and everything can unravel.

And too many women still face discrimination and other obstacles — from sexual harassment and assault to wage inequality and pregnancy discrimination — that make it difficult for them to succeed.

These are serious concerns for Black women. For Latinas. For Native American women. For Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. For LGBTQ+ people, the disabled, and those living on the economic margins. For ALL women.

That's why we're challenging the status quo, and we need your help.
