The California Women’s Law Center (CWLC) was founded in 1989 by Sheila Kuehl, Abby Leibman, and Jenifer McKenna. They created the first law center in California dedicated solely to addressing the comprehensive and unique legal needs of women and girls to promote gender equality. Today, CWLC continues to serve as an advocate in California, working in collaboration with others to protect, secure and advance the comprehensive civil rights of women and girls.
For more than thirty years, CWLC has served as a unique advocate in California, working in collaboration with allies to protect, secure, and advance the comprehensive civil rights of women and girls, with a particular emphasis on low-income women and girls. At least 75% of legal services clients in California are women and their children, a staggering client base with diverse and complex needs.
CWLC has unparalleled expertise in women’s legal issues and has been a champion for effective strategies to protect and advance women’s rights. CWLC has advocated for and achieved policy change on a wide range of issues including gender discrimination and Title IX enforcement, women’s health and reproductive justice, economic security, and sexual assault and harassment.
