National Association of Women Judges

Archived web site of www.nawj.org/index.asp

 

Founded in 1979, the National Association of Women Judges "seeks to promote the administration of justice; to discuss and formulate solutions to legal, educational, social and ethical problems encountered by women judges; to increase the number of women judges so that the judiciary more appropriately reflects the role of women in a democratic society." Other goals have included the appointment of a woman to the Supreme Court, passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, and the elimination of gender bias in the courts, which the NAWJ addressed in 1980 by forming the National Judicial Education Program to Promote Equality for Women and Men in the Courts in cooperation with the National Organization for Women Legal Defense and Education Fund. In 1980 the Foundation for Women Judges was established as the education (tax-exempt) counterpart to the NAWJ; its name was changed to the Women Judges Fund for Justice in 1986 and in 1995 the Fund was folded into the NAWJ.
