Economic Justice

We advance public policies that promote economic justice and workplace 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.

Are you familiar with the FMLA? Perhaps you’ve already benefited from the job-protected leave it guarantees.

Paid Leave

At some point, nearly everyone will need to take time away from work to deal with a serious personal or family health condition, or to bond with a new child.

Pregnancy Discrimination

For too many women, having a baby still means losing your job or a promotion.

Fair Pay

You deserve to be paid fairly. It's that simple.

Paid Sick Days

Everyone gets sick, but not everyone has time to get better.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is never acceptable, but it’s all too common in the workplace.
