 "The concept of justice is broad and serious in nature; it is antithetical to any discrimination triggered by prejudice." Chief Judge Lawrence H. Cooke May 31, 1984, on the creation of NY Task Force on Women in the Courts

The New York State Judicial Committee on Women in the Courts works to secure the equal justice, equal treatment, and equal opportunity that the 1986 report of the New York Task Force on Women in the Courts found were often denied women. A standing committee of the New York State's Unified Court System, the New York State Judicial Committee on Women in the Courts has a diverse membership appointed by the Chief Judge of the State of New York.

Working within the New York court system, the New York State Judicial Committee on Women in the Courts addresses a variety of concerns of women litigants, attorneys, and court employees. In recent years it has acted on behalf of constituencies that range from domestic violence victims to immigrant women and from sexually-harassed employees to self-represented matrimonial litigants.
