Home / Issues / Independent Women's Law Center


Independent Women’s Law Center aims to influence the debate about women and the law and provide a distinctly female perspective on issues related to equal opportunity, individual liberty, freedom of association, and access to justice. Independent Women’s Law Center educates the public about the proper role of the courts and the importance of a truly independent judiciary—and supports the nomination and confirmation of judges who understand that the role of the court is to interpret the law, not make law.
