The AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF) works to combat sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace.
LAF initiatives include community and campus outreach programs, a resource library and online advocacy tools, a Legal Referral Network, and various research reports. LAF also provides support to workplace sex discrimination cases that have the potential to make a difference for all women.
