Despite great strides made in recent decades, gender discrimination remains a problem. This discrimination takes many forms – unequal pay in the workplace, gender differences in health insurance coverage and cost, and ongoing attempts to limit access to reproductive health care, including abortion.
Until full equality is a reality, the ACLU will continue its advocacy work in support of women’s rights.
“Women’s rights are an essential part of the overall human rights agenda, trained on the equal dignity and ability to live in freedom all people should enjoy.”
– Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice and Founder of the ACLU Women’s Rights Project
