Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Civil Rights, Women, Womens Rights

Mission:

The Women’s Law Project creates a more just and equitable society by advancing the rights and status of all women throughout their lives. To this end, we engage in high- impact litigation, advocacy, and education. Our core values are the belief in the right of all women to bodily integrity and personal autonomy; dedication to listening to women and being guided by their experiences; and commitment to fairness, equality and justice.

Programs:

The WLP was instrumental in passing the Pittsburgh buffer zone, which protects the safety of patients and preserves access to abortion care in Pittsburgh while respecting the rights of protesters. We represented plaintiffs in Planned Parenthood v. Casey and two other landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases, ensured pregnant women’s medical autonomy, improved access to Medicaid-funded abortions and increased the availability of emergency contraception in ten counties in western Pennsylvania.
