Legal Momentum’s new worker resource was created in collaboration with the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) and graphic designer Vic Lui, as part of CUP’s Making Policy Public program. This resource, Women, Know Your Rights at Work!, is a fold-out poster in English and Spanish that aims to empower women workers. The booklet provides accessible information on legal protections regarding gender discrimination, unlawful pay practices, workplace health and safety, and caregiving. The fold-out poster provides a menu of targeted strategies and options to help workers prevent violations, take steps to better safeguard their workplace rights, and to seek the support women so often need to advocate for themselves and to avoid the isolation that holds them back.
Our guide was created based on input from women workers and tackles some of the unique vulnerabilities and challenges faced by women most underserved by our laws, including women of color, immigrant women, victims of gender-based violence, and the disproportionate number of women working in low-wage industries. The resource therefore takes into account the work and experiences of women in domestic work, restaurant work, nursing, farm work, the garment industry, office work, and beyond.
