Mission

Gender Justice envisions a world where everyone can thrive regardless of their gender, gender expression, or sexual orientation. Step by step, we’re creating that world by dismantling legal, structural, and cultural barriers that contribute to gender inequity. We work to ensure that people of all genders have a meaningful right to bodily autonomy, safety, health, and opportunity.

Impact and Strategic Litigation

We bring cases that make a point. Our cases clarify what the law actually means in practice, change the interpretation of the law, or raise new and important issues as yet unaddressed by the courts.

We select cases based on their potential either to affect broad populations in similar situations as our clients or to set a powerful legal precedent on a particular issue. We believe in the power of the court to change our legal system and our society. We use the law to help people and to advance our vision of a society free from gender barriers.

In the past, our cases have addressed discrimination against transgender and gender non-conforming clients, undocumented immigrants, women in traditionally masculine trades, pregnant workers, low-income tenants, and many more.

Population(s) Served
LGBTQ people
Women and girls

Along with our work in the courts, we utilize the legislature to create social change. We lobby for new policies and laws that transform the ways our country addresses gender injustice. By organizing locally and nationally for meaningful reform, we work to change public opinion on gender.

We build partnerships with other organizations that share the goal of breaking down gender barriers.
