Each week, United State of Women shines the spotlight on a pioneer who has influenced the movement toward gender equality. We are so proud to have the pioneering work of our state project leads highlighted this week. The blog featured a video interview with Noreen Farrell, Executive Director of Equal Rights Advocates in California and Chair of Equal Pay Today! followed by interviews with state project leads in five of our six states.
California was represented by Jennifer Reisch at Equal Rights Advocates, Amy Poyer at California Women’s Law Center and Elizabeth Kristen at the Legal Aid Society — Employment Law Center; Illinois was represented by Melissa Joseph at Women Employed; New Mexico was represented by Pamelya Herndon at Southwest Women’s Law Center; Pennsylvania was represented by Terry Fromson at Women’s Law Project; and Washington was represented by Janet Chung at Legal Voice. Equal Pay Today! also supports a project in Minnesota, which is led by Lisa Stratton at Gender Justice.
