I have witnessed the importance and impact of the PCSW for more than 20 years as a resident of Connecticut and have worked with the PCSW as a partner for women’s economic equality for nearly 16 years. The PCSW is one of Connecticut’s best kept secrets, and one of the premier women’s public policy commissions in the country.

For 40 years, the PCSW has been the voice of women in Connecticut. The PCSW is a watchdog on issues critical to and for women. By State statute they hold State government accountable. Accountability based on a Check-and-balance system is critical to government integrity. With this system PCSW analyzes how states policies affect or do not affect women and families.
