Don’t you think it’s time wage equity became a reality for all women in Seattle? Meet local and state leaders and advocates who are working toward that reality at the Town Hall on Gender Pay Equity, coordinated by Seattle City Councilmember Jean Godden. The panel will discuss why and how we should take action for gender pay equity in Seattle, why the wage gap is worse for women of color and mothers, and what YOU can do to support fair pay efforts.

State Representative Tana Senn, a strong supporter of Paid Sick and Safe Leave in the Washinton State House of Representatives.

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.
