National Women's Law Center

The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) works to improve the lives of women and girls, with a focus on the needs of low-income families. NWLC provides state-level data analyses, materials, and technical assistance to get new laws passed and enforced. They educate the public about ways to make the law and public policies work for women and their families.
