Women's Liberation Front
The Women's Liberation Front (WoLF) is an American non-profit radical feminist organization known for its opposition to transgender rights. WoLF has engaged in litigation regarding transgender topics, working against the Obama administration's Title IX directives and the case of Gavin Grimm. WoLF describes itself as a radical feminist organization; it is chaired by Natasha Chart.
In August 2016, WoLF filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration for its directive on Title IX permitting students to use bathrooms matching their gender identity. WoLF stated the directive was against the intent of Title IX and would allow men into women's spaces. In 2017, WoLF partnered with the Family Policy Alliance (FPA), an affiliate of the conservative Christian organization Focus on the Family. WoLF and FPA filed a joint amicus curiae brief to the Supreme Court in opposition to a lower court ruling in favor of Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy who desired to use a school bathroom matching his gender identity. In 2019, the Heritage Foundation hosted a panel against the Equality Act featuring members of WoLF, which sparked criticism from progressives. On August 20, 2019, WoLF filed an amicus curiae opposing the inclusion of gender identity protections for transgender people in the R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission case.
