The Fight for Women's Legal Rights Today
- Fatima Goss Graves, CEO and President of the National Women's Law Center
With the announcement of the Biden administration's creation of the White House Gender Policy Council, which will guide and coordinate government policy that impacts women and girls, across a wide range of issues such as economic security, health care, racial justice, gender-based violence, and foreign policy, gender equality is firmly on the policy agenda.
How will those goals translate to social justice in the legal realm? Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, will give her perspective on how to make the law more equitable in this moment. In this conversation with Ford School professor Celeste Watkins-Hayes, they will address protecting sexual and reproductive rights, ensuring workplace and economic justice, and addressing sexual assault, among other issues.
This event is hosted by the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and co-sponsored by Students of Color in Public Policy, Women and Gender in Public Policy, the Department of Women's and Gender Studies, the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, and the Women's Law Students Association.
