Theme: “Nevertheless She Persisted”:
Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women
During this Women’s History Month we can take time to reflect on the commitment Federally Employed Women (FEW) has made over the past 50 years, and will continue to make in the future, to end discrimination of all forms. As our Mission statement provides “Federally Employed Women works to end sex and gender discrimination, to encourage diversity for inclusion and equity in the workplace, and for the advancement and professional growth of women in federal service”. It is through persistence that FEW can, and will, fight against discrimination of all, whether through sexism, race and ethnicity, class, disability, sexual orientation, and other categories. FEW remains committed to impact legislation against forms of discrimination and your role in that commitment is crucial. During this Women’s History Month, please take the time to review the open legislative issues and let your voice be heard through the CapWiz tool (found under Our Focus / Legislative on the FEW website).
Let’s all celebrate the strides we have made throughout the years, take time to realize there is much more work to be done, and know that if we all persist together, we can certainly effect change.
