At our meeting on March 8th, Jody Miller, Equal Employment Opportunity/Human Rights Officer for Dutchess County was our guest speaker for International Women’s Day.
Jody provided a historical perspective. Jody also spoke about "gender parity." We have come a long way, but there is still work to be done. Women’s rights issue is a Human Rights issue. It’s not a local issue, it is global. Gender parity is linked to economic prosperity. If you want to get more information, go to: "The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap".
We also had a group discussion about the personal “disparity” that we have encountered which led to a lively discussion with many attendees sharing their stories.
Ballots were passed out to members that were in attendance to choose what our FUN event will be in July. Stay tuned!
