(Washington, DC)  The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) has appointed Fatima Goss Graves to the newly created position of Senior Vice-President for Program, where she will lead the Center’s broad program agenda, NWLC said today. As Vice President for Education and Employment at the Center since 2009, Goss Graves led the Center’s anti-discrimination initiatives, including work to promote equal pay, combat harassment and sexual assault at work and at school, and advance equal access to education programs, with a particular focus on outcomes for women and girls of color.

(Washington, DC) Today, the Senate did not advance a bill to defund Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The bill would have taken away affordable and essential health care for millions of women, men, and young people, and deny them life-saving diagnostic tools.

Our Impact

LaShonda Davis says, “NWLC took my case all the way to the Supreme Court and won. As a result, other students who are harassed will get the help that I didn’t, and schools will do more to protect students.”

I worked at Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company for close to two decades. I was paid less than my male co-workers the entire time—even though I was doing the same work they were and doing it well. Near the end of my time there, I received an anonymous note alerting me to the discrimination, and I decided to fight for justice, with the help of the National Women's Law Center and its allies.

A vision of reproductive justice for Latinas must include a comprehensive plan for economic security.

For those of us who are self-taught when it comes to Sex Ed, we’re fortunate to have Planned Parenthood, which offers a comprehensive Sex Ed class for young adults.
