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.
