2Title:  Women's Law Fund Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Women's Law Fund 
 Dates:  1972-1996 
 Abstract:  The Women's Law Fund (1972-2006), a non-profit organization co-founded by attorneys Jane M. Picker and Lizbeth A. Moody, both professors at Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, evolved out of divisions within Women's Equity Action League (WEAL) concerning the mission, structure, and funding of that organization. WEAL was a national organization founded in Cleveland, Ohio, and committed to combating sex discrimination and advocating for economic equality for women through education and litigation. The focus of Women's Law Fund was to fund specific sex discrimination cases and secure attorneys for litigation. In the first case supported by the fund, LaFleur, et al. v. Cleveland Board of Education, et al., the U.S Supreme Court prohibited the school board's mandatory maternity leave policy for violation of the Fourteenth Amendment's Due Process Clause. The Women's Law Fund disbanded in 2006 having reached its goals. The collection consists of administrative records, agendas, charts, correspondence, financial records, forms, grant proposals, legal records, lists, memoranda, minutes, newspaper articles, notes, promotional materials, and reports.
