What is WomensLaw.org?
WomensLaw.org was founded in February 2000 by a group of lawyers, teachers, activists, and web designers interested in seeing the power of the Internet work for more disadvantaged people and specifically for survivors of domestic violence. We pulled together our experiences and resources and launched this website in October 2001.
Our legal name remains Women's Law Initiative, but we are in the process of changing it to WomensLaw.org.
The Mission of WomensLaw.org is to provide easy-to-understand legal information and resources to women living with or escaping domestic violence. By reaching out through the Internet, we empower women and girls to lead independent and productive lives, free from abuse.
As you will see on these pages, the site publishes state-specific legal information for domestic violence. It also publishes information on getting help in your community. We also provide help through email, directly to women and advocates, throughout the U.S. (Contact Us)
