Legal Momentum is the oldest non-profit legal organization dedicated to advancing the rights of women and girls by using the power of the law and creating innovative public policy.

We were founded as the NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund in 1970 and have been at the forefront of this movement for over 50 years.
