Yes, you read that headline right! We’re teaming up with the Connecticut Forum to get the word out about their upcoming event – The State of Women: Exploring Rights, Roles, Politics and Power. The event is taking place at the Bushnell in Hartford on October 12th at 8 PM. Gloria Steinem and Ashley Judd are just two of the events panelists and we’re giving away two free tickets!
The event will delve into the question – what are the most important issues facing women today?
As moms, you will likely find yourself drawn to issues around motherhood. A lot of topics that have been discussed right here on CTWorkingMoms.com are very relevant to the discussion: paid maternity leave, paid sick days, workplace flexibility, access to affordable and quality health insurance, breastfeeding rights and more.
Their website teaser text reads:
The myth of “having it all” sparks a passionate response from working women and stay-at-home mothers alike.
Additionally, issues of reproductive rights and gender equality are in the headlines every day. And politicians are spending more time discussing women’s issues than they have in years.
You even have a chance to pose your own question(s) to the panelists, an aspect of the event that I personally think is very cool. Click here to see how to submit your question.
This is your chance to score two free tickets to this intriguing event!
