National Women's Law Center jobs




Company Description

The National Women's Law Center battles for sex equity — in the courts, to promote harmony and justice in a community. They utilize the law in the entirety of its structures to change the culture and drive answers for the sex imbalance that shapes the general public and to separate the hindrances that hurt everyone , particularly the individuals who face various types of segregation, including working ladies, LGBTQ individuals, and low-income ladies and families. For over 45 years, they have been on the main edge of major lawful strategy triumph for ladies. The Center started in 1972 when secretaries at a public law office set four expectations: better compensation for ladies, more ladies staff lawyers, work on ladies' privileges, and no serving coffee. And they triumphed. Their human rights activists have vast experience in tackling complex issues, who are paid a nice salary package by the company.
