We’ve come a long way since women were paid 59 cents to men’s dollar, but women in Vermont are still playing catch up. In Vermont 43% of women working full time aren’t making enough to cover their basic needs, and they’re seriously underrepresented in many fields and at the highest levels of leadership. But Vermont is also ahead of the pack in many ways when it comes to women’s advancement, and we’ll talk about the good news as well as the challenges on the horizon.
Speaker Cary Brown, the Executive Director of the Vermont Commission on Women will address this topic. VCW is a state agency working to advance rights and opportunities for women and girls since 1964.
Part of Tuesday Talks, a new speaker series for state employees sponsored by the Vermont Department of Libraries.
