The Center's research, analysis, and advocacy take place when legislatures are enacting or amending laws, the executive branch and its agencies are writing regulations or otherwise enforcing laws and policies, and the courts are reviewing actions. The Center also conducts campaigns and public awareness efforts to educate and mobilize the public to press for policy changes to improve women's lives. Today, the Center has an experienced staff of about 70 who identify and address the most important issues facing women and their families. Because of the Center's work, a woman in a downtown office building or an Army tank overseas has more protection against discrimination and more opportunity for advancement than ever before; a high school girl has many more chances to play sports and benefit from courses in math and science; a single mother is more likely to find and be able to afford child care so she can earn a living; and a woman is more likely to have health insurance for the services she needs, like birth control and maternity care. The areas the Center focuses on are described in more detail below, and staff with specific expertise are listed for each issue.Something looks off?
