Being Female in America-SCPA Addresses Inequality


Being Female In America 


If 51% of America's population is female, then why are women so under-represented in our politics at every level? Why do women still get a fraction of pay for the same work when standing side-by-side with men at a job? Why are so few women in top leadership positions in business and other organizations? 

Please join us for an interactive discussion about what it means to be a female in America today.

THURSDAY, MAY 2 / 6:30 P.M.
