If Trump Wants A War With Women, These Lawyers Are Ready For Battle

The newly formed Legal Network for Gender Equity was created to combat the White House’s “all-out assault on women’s rights.”

If Trump Wants A War With Women, These Lawyers Are Ready For Battle.

On Wednesday morning, the nonprofit National Women’s Law Center announced its new Legal Network for Gender Equity ― staffed by 73 lawyers ― meant to aggressively defend women and girls from sex discrimination in the workplace, in schools and in the health care system. The network’s lawyers will take on cases, collect data on sex discrimination and share resources on key legal developments in this area of law.

The initiative comes at a particularly fraught and seemingly paradoxical time for women facing sex discrimination, harassment and assault. More and more women are speaking up about their experiences with such abuse ― witness the spate of stories accusing Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of a decades-long history of harassment, assault and rape.


Some welcome good news....
