In order for women to become equal contributors to our government, we need to have equal representation. PCSW has worked towards ensuring that appointments to various boards and commissions are filled by qualified women, not an easy task in an area that has been historically dominated by men.
There is still a need for education to end sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Connecticut has made great gains, but we are not there yet. This is only a small portion of what the PCSW provides. They have initiated many programs to help women get back to work after a hiatus, learn a new trade, inspire young women to set high goals for themselves in education and employment.
