Advocating for Women and Girls
CWEALF protects and promotes the rights of women and girls by identifying and articulating the challenges they face and elevating their interests and voices through public policy and advocacy.
Our Legal Education Program helps us to understand the significant needs of women and girls throughout the state. To achieve better opportunities for women, CWEALF leads policy coalitions, offers public testimony, and collaborates with community partners.
CWEALF fights gender discrimination and advances the rights, opportunities and status of women and girls, with a focus on:
Economic Security and Success
Access to Justice
Workplace and Education Equity
Freedom from Violence and Harassment
Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
Read CWEALF’s 2018 Legislative Agenda, “Economic Security for All CT Women,” and sign our petition to send a clear message to our state leaders that the economic success of women is critical to the success of our state economy.
