Reclaiming Prosperity: Gender and Work

When: Today, May 19th at 6:30PM
Where: Town Hall, 1119 8th Ave
Cost: $5
Event page: www.townhallseattle.org

Women’s wages are lower than men’s in every U.S. state, but what does income inequality mean for women in the workforce? This discussion will focus on the changing nature of work — and how it affects gender roles, families, and economic security. Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, Anna Greenberg, and Saru Jayaraman will explore the current landscape of the gender pay gap and its relationship to labor. Rowe-Finkbeiner is the co-founder and Executive Director/CEO of MomsRising, a grassroots organization working toward economic security for families. Greenberg is a leader in the field of political polling, data analytics, and micro-targeting at GQR Digital. Jayaraman is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United.

Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Reclaiming Prosperity thread of the Civics series, presented with Working Washington. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True-Brown Foundation. Series media sponsorship provided by The Stranger and KUOW.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
