The judges appointed to our federal courts will shape women's legal rights for decades to come. We're working to increase the diversity of our federal courts, to ensure that the court system isn’t crippled by vacancies, and to urge the nomination of judges who are fair-minded and understand the impact of the law on women’s lives.
