Legal Momentum - Advancing Women's Rights
Legal Momentum advances the rights of women and girls by using the power of the law and creating innovative public policy.
Legal Momentum aspires to grow in its role as the leading national legal advocate for expanding the rights and opportunities of women and girls. We identify, analyze and shape solutions for emerging challenges and areas of greatest need by applying our expertise and the highest professionalism in law and communications. Our work focuses on three broad initiatives: economic justice, freedom from gender-based violence and equality under the law. We strive to integrate diverse perspectives in our work by expanding our engagement across communities and generations.
We work to gain economic justice through litigation and policy reform that will substantially increase opportunities for women to move out of poverty through expanded job training and education; increase the numbers of higher-paying jobs available to women in the trades and uniformed municipal services; and dramatically expand public investment in care for children -- child care, preschool and afterschool – ensuring that it is available to all families who want it.
