Public Affairs Conference - Liberty and women's equality

Public Affairs Conference - Liberty and women's equality
Date and time
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM, April 06, 2017
Description

Women are a voting majority in the United States yet females hold only 20% of seats in the U.S. Congress, 24% in state legislatures and six governorships. Additionally, women make up 47% of the total U.S. labor force yet only 4% of Fortune 500 CEOs are female. While there is more equality and fairness in the workplace than ever before, perhaps this paints too rosy a picture. Issues of domestic and sexual violence, pay equality, paid family leave and access to contraception remain. What is the best way forward in protecting and promoting women’s equality?
