Women’s Rights Advocate Looks Back on 30 Years of Progress
| 1 - 2 - 3
MARCIA GREENBERGER CW’67, L’70 is a veteran of more than 30 years of political and legal battles who has fought tooth and nail for every gain in women’s rights since 1972. At
the Institute for Law and Economics’ LAW AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP LECTURE last October, she told war stories extending back as far as Roe v. Wade.
Greenberger founded the National Women’s Law Center as part of the Center for Law and Social Policy just before that decision, and later became co-president of the NWLC when it
expanded into an independent organization. Since its beginnings, the women’s rights group has been using litigation and legislation initiatives to fight gender inequalities in
employment, education, family economic security, health, and reproductive rights.
