SSWLC supports the Women’s Law Center of Maryland (WLC) and promotes a feminist dialogue on Maryland Law’s campus.

WLC Background

The WLC advocates for a level playing field for women and children through direct services, such as operating a family law and employment hotline; representing victims of domestic violence; and seeking protective orders for immigrant women. The WLC also advocates by writing or joining amicus brief on issues furthering its mission and lobbying in Annapolis on topics such as emergency contraception, consent education, and allowing protective orders as evidence in divorce hearings.

Students Supporting the Women's Law Center

The SSWLC raises money for the WLC, has a mentoring partnership with the WLC Board, sends interns to the WLC, and attends WLC events. On campus, we host events concerning feminist topics like reproductive justice, sexual assault, and online harassment. Last, we volunteer with Baltimore-area intersectional feminist organizations like FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture.
