FEW’s Legislative Program is dynamic at the national, state, and local levels. Our legislative agenda works in concert with our mission of representing federally employed women’s concerns and interests before legislative and judicial bodies. The Legislative Program is one that is both pro-active and defensive in monitoring urgent Congressional proposals in order to assess the impact on women. FEW accomplishes our mission by establishing close communication with the current Administration and Members of Congress to promote the needs and concerns of women in the federal service.
