CWL was chartered in 1974. It was organized "to advance women in the profession of law; to improve the administration of justice; to better the position of women in society; to eliminate all inequities based on gender; and to provide an organization for collective action and expression germane to the aforesaid purposes."
Gender Definition Position Statement
Gender for the purposes of the California Women Lawyers' Mission is best described as a spectrum. For many it is fluid. Everyone defines and expresses their gender for themselves.
California Women Lawyers welcomes persons of all gender identities and expressions.
