Legal Fund

The Legal Fund assists women faculty to defend themselves against employment discrimination in their educational institutions.

If you are experiencing academic discrimination and have hired (or are in the process of hiring) legal counsel, you may apply to the F.A.A.D. Legal Fund for assistance.

We are especially interested in women professors discriminated against on the grounds that women’s studies “isn’t significant” or because we are “too abrasive” or “political” in standing up for our rights.

The F.A.A.D. Legal Fund exists because of contributions made by feminist faculty who were assisted by F.A.A.D. in the past.
