Women's Rights

Authored By: American Civil Liberties Union

Ruth Bader Ginsburg founded the Women's Rights Project (WRP) in 1972. WRP focuses on assisting and empowering poor women, women of color, and immigrant women, who historically have been deeply victimized by gender bias and continue to face pervasive barriers to equality today. Through litigation, community outreach, advocacy, and public education, WRP pushes for change and systemic reform of those institutions that perpetuate discrimination against women.
