Mission Statement

The National Partnership for Women & Families is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that uses public education and advocacy to promote fairness in the workplace, quality health care, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family.

Description

Not that long ago, women only dared to dream that they could stop sexual harassment; keep their jobs if they became pregnant; get the quality health care they needed; and care for their families without putting their jobs on the line. For more than 30 years, the National Partnership has been changing the world in ways that make life better for women and families. From outlawing sexual harassment to prohibiting pregnancy discrimination to giving 50 million Americans family and medical leave, the National Partnership has fought for every major policy advancement that has helped women and families in the last three decades. Founded in 1971 as the Women's Legal Defense Fund, the National Partnership has grown from a small group of volunteers into one of the nation's most powerful and effective advocates for women and families. Working with business, government, unions, nonprofit organizations, and the media, the National Partnership is a voice for fairness, a source for solutions, and a force for change.
