Abstract: We show that if a distribution is locally spanned by Lipschitz vector fields and is involutive a.e., then it is uniquely integrable giving rise to a Lipschitz foliation with leaves of class $ C^{1, \text {Lip}} $. As a consequence, we show that every codimension-one Anosov flow on a compact manifold of dimension $ >3 $ such that the sum of its strong distributions is Lipschitz, admits a global cross section.
