In 2019, the California Legislature passed significant pieces of legislation that furthered gender equality and protected the human rights of women and girls. Below is a review of key legislation that IANGEL supported, concerning human trafficking, abortion rights, and sex workers’ rights. These five new laws will take effect on January 1, 2020.
As 2019 comes to a close, we’ve taken the time to review our past year’s successes, new initiatives and the partners and collaborators who have made it all possible.

As a term, “social inclusion” is meant to highlight the importance of quality of life after trafficking, including dignity, employment and family unity.
The amicus brief argues that allowing an employer to rely on market-based excuses to justify pay differences between women and men doing the same job contradicts the purpose of equal pay laws themselves, and perpetuates the gender wage gap. IANGEL continues to support efforts that work to ensure gender equality under the law.
