Our Mission:

The Mission of the Women's Law Project 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.

Throughout its history, the WLP has brought and won lawsuits challenging gender discrimination. It has worked to eliminate gender discrimination in laws and institutions, to promote changes in the legal system that will improve the status and opportunities of women and their families, to improve the responses of public agencies to women’s needs, to educate the public about the status of women’s rights, and to empower women by providing information which enables them to address problems in their lives. See WLP Case Statement.
