2023 Women’s Equality Scholarship

All people, regardless of gender, have the right to equal access to resources, responsibilities, and opportunities. Recently, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe V Wade, taking away the right to bodily autonomy and reproductive freedom and placing millions of women across the country in danger. At Showard Law Firm, we believe all women deserve the right to choose whether and when to become mothers

 

To continue this discussion of women’s equality in the United States, we have created the Women’s Equality Scholarship.  In 750-1000 words, we want to hear your perspective and opinions on this topic and what we can do as a society to improve equality for women. This scholarship has an award of $1,000 and must be submitted by May 31, 2023.
