Women’s Rights

Women have made great strides in the fight for equality, but gender bias continues to create huge barriers for many, especially low-income women, women of color, and immigrant women. Ongoing struggles include ensuring equal economic and educational opportunities, ending gender-based violence, and addressing the harms to women and girls in the criminal justice system. Since 1972 the ACLU has been working to systematically end sex discrimination and ensure that all women and girls are able to lead lives of dignity. We have fought for gender equality in healthcare coverage as well as fairness in the workplace.
