Kim to launch Women Supporting Working Women campaign

State Rep. Patty Kim, D-Dauphin, invites everyone to watch the official virtual launch of the Women Supporting Working Women campaign at 10:30 a.m. Monday, March 15.

This event is being held with the support of the Pennsylvania Governor’s Office and the Pennsylvania Senate Democratic Caucus.

“When women support other women, incredible things can happen,” Kim said. “This Woman’s History Month, we wanted to highlight how a raise to the minimum wage can help alleviate pay inequity. Not only that, but hundreds of thousands of families with working women would be helped immediately across the commonwealth. We hope that you will take some time to listen to our stories and why raising the wage matters so much to working women.”

“As we celebrate women’s history throughout March, it is important that we continue to make history by advancing gender equality,” said state Sen. Christine Tartaglione, D-Phila. “It is unacceptable in 2021 that women continue to earn less than men for comparable work. And it is unacceptable that our low-wage workforce is disproportionately comprised of women. Raising the minimum wage would help correct these injustices.”

In addition to Kim and Tartaglione, other guest speakers for this discussion include:

  • Frances Wolf, first lady of Pennsylvania.
  • Gisele Fetterman, second lady of Pennsylvania.
  • State Rep. Joanna McClinton, Democratic leader of the Pennsylvania House.

Anyone interested in watching can find out more at this Facebook event. You will be able to watch live on the Senate Democratic Caucus Facebook page and at at the time of the event, as well as participating member websites.
