Judy Lichtman is the former President and current Senior Advisor of the National
Partnership for Women and Families. Driven by Ms. Lichtman's determination, the
National Partnership has been at the forefront of every major piece of civil
rights legislation related to women and families for 30 years. The
organization has used advocacy, lobbying, litigation, and public education to
help secure the passage of some of the most important legal protections for
American women and families, including the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978
and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993. Acknowledging Ms.
Lichtman's visionary leadership, President Clinton called her "a remarkable
national treasure." Lichtman has also received a slew of awards, including
recognition by Washingtonian Magazine as one of Washington, DC's most
powerful women and Washingtonian of the Year in 1986 and the Leadership
Conference on Civil Rights Hubert H. Humphrey Award in 2000.
