Kim launches Women Supporting Working Women campaign
State Rep. Patty Kim, D-Dauphin, today announced the official launch of the Women Supporting Working Women campaign. You can watch the full event on PayPAWomen.com.
“This event brings together strong women leaders from different branches of government and all walks of life,” Kim said. “Our common goal here is to raise the minimum wage and support working women and their families. We want to hear your stories, as well as ask for your support. Working together, we can achieve anything.”
“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 included:
- Frances Wolf, first lady of Pennsylvania.
- Gisele Fetterman, second lady of Pennsylvania.
- State Rep. Joanna McClinton, Democratic leader of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
