The Women’s Law Center of Maryland was established in 1971 to address the legal needs of women, particularly in the areas of family law and in the workplace. Through impact litigation and public education, the group’s founders hoped to eliminate discrimination and unfair practices. Although the issues have changed, the group’s vision remains the same – a legal system that provides justice and fairness for women. This is a view that the MurthyNAYAK Foundation can get behind, too, which is why we are long-time partners.
The Women’s Law Center is overseen by the dedicated members of a volunteer Board. The organization’s mission and services are supported by members and financial contributors. Its diverse membership includes women and men from all walks of life, including lawyers and non-lawyers. Staff members provide representation to individual clients, answer hotlines to educate individuals about their rights and engage in advocacy efforts to accomplish systemic change.
