The women’s rights legal practice area may also include immigration and refugee matters, child custody, criminal justice, health care, housing, labor trafficking and many others as they intersect with women’s lives. Feminist leaders today often focus on areas of intersection between women’s rights and other issue areas.

Lawyers focused on women’s rights law typically work on impact litigation, direct service, or policy work in non-profits and with federal, state and local government agencies.
