WDVM: August 26th is Women’s Equality Day

August 26. 2021

Executive Director Noreen Farrell was featured on Washington D.C. and Maryland’s WDVM TV for Women’s Equality Day, speaking about issues women face today that keep them from achieving true equality:

“I think coming through COVID-19, we’ve really seen a reckoning in terms of all of the systems in place that were not working for women in the workplace, and what really needs to change in this country,” said Noreen Farrell, executive director of Equal Rights Advocates. “2.5 million women left the workplace during COVID because they did not have the systems they needed to stay.”
