Today, American women are still paid only 77 cents for every dollar paid to men, nine out of ten American workers don’t have paid family leave and nearly 40 million don’t have a single paid sick day. Plus – there is a critical need for affordable, quality child care in this country. We can change that.
On January 29th, Feminist Majority, our allies, and champions in Congress invite you to join an unprecedented national conversation about these issues and the changes that will advance income equality and economic security for women and families in America.
Here are the details:
- WHAT: Let’s Talk About It: Advancing women and families in 2014 A National Tele-Townhall Event on fair pay, paid leave, and access to child care
- WHEN: Wednesday, January 29, 2014 Anniversary of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act 8:30 p.m. ET
- WHERE: From the comfort of your phone! No numbers to dial, we’ll call you to connect to the event
Fair pay, paid sick days, paid family and medical leave, and affordable child care are fundamental policy reforms that need to be on the national agenda. Hear from – and ask questions of – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Lilly Ledbetter, working women from across America, and Congresswomen championing these critical issues.
Help make 2014 a year focused on advancing women and families in America. RSVP now to join the Wednesday, January 29th call.
