The Women's Law Project joined the fight for women's rights in 1974, founded by a group of feminist attorneys devoted to equality and justice. Emboldened by the resurgent feminist movement of the 1970s, we soon won national recognition for our trailblazing Equal Rights Amendment Project, combining extensive litigation under state ERAs with public education. Our mission is to create a more just and equitable society by advancing the rights and status of all women throughout their lives. To this end, we engage in high-impact litigation, advocacy, and education.
