The Fight for Justice for Women: A Conversation with Attorney Gloria Allred

On September 29th, IWF heard from esteemed women’s rights icon and IWF Southern California member, attorney Gloria Allred, in a special session highlighting the issue of violence against women, impacting women globally.

Ms. Allred has dedicated her life to pursuing equal justice under the law for all Americans no matter their gender, race, age, sexual orientation or disability. Ms. Allred is a partner in the law firm of Allred, Maroko & Goldberg which has been the leading women’s rights law firm in the United States for 44 years. Her law firm has won new rights for women and minorities and hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of violence against women. Ms. Allred will address what is happening in many high profile cases involving victims of rape, child sexual abuse, sexual assault and sex trafficking of underage girls. She will discuss the Harvey Weinstein case, the case of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Cuba Gooding Jr., and the sexual harassment case against billionaire, Alki David, which her law firm won last year resulting in a verdict of $58,250,000 for one victim of sexual harassment.

In the Lead: The Honorable Barbara Hackman Franklin on the 19th Amendment Centennial

On this Women’s Equality Day, August 26, 2020, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The 19th Amendment states, “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”

In this edition of In the Lead, the Honorable Barbara Hackman Franklin discusses this important milestone in American history. Her unique perspective stems from serving in leadership positions for five U.S. Presidents, leading the first White House effort to recruit women for high-level government jobs and being listed by TIME Magazine as one of the 50 Women Who Made American Political History.

In her responses below, she expands on successful strategies employed by suffragettes, why few women are in global positions of political and corporate leadership and important actions that young leaders can take to press forward with efforts towards fuller equality.
