The Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) is taking radical feminist arguments to the Fourth Circuit in our fight to preserve the rights of women and girls under Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972. See our legal brief, filed May 15, 2017 (PDF).
WoLF is also pressing a petition for rulemaking at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), seeking a repeal of 2015 rules that forced previously sex-segregated women’s homeless and domestic violence shelters to admit men based on “gender identity.”

History: On August 11, 2016, WoLF filed a lawsuit challenging the Obama administration's May 13, 2016 "Dear Colleague Letter," which mandated that every public school and university in the U.S. unconditionally admit men to women’s bathrooms, locker rooms, changing rooms and other facilities based on self-declared “gender identity.” The lawsuit, filed in the federal District Court for New Mexico, argued that the interpretation of Title IX contained in the letter violated the Administrative Procedure Act, Title IX, and the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution.
To protect WoLF’s interests in our lawsuit and to expand our fight against “gender identity” laws, on September 27, 2016, we filed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to review the case of Gloucester County School Board v. G.G., in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit issued a ruling that threatened to deprive students of their right to have access to sex-segregated spaces. The Supreme Court accepted the case, and WoLF submitted a second amicus brief on January 9, 2017, arguing that the Fourth Circuit’s ruling was contrary to the plain meaning of Title IX.
The Trump administration issued a new “Dear Colleague Letter” on February 22, 2017, rescinding the Obama administration’s letter and rendering our New Mexico complaint moot. WoLF voluntarily dismissed the case, and we have shifted attention to new threats to women’s liberation.
