On the White House Council on Women and Girls blog, Secretary Solis reflects on WOMEN ORGANIZE!, a Women’s History Month forum with women workers and organizers sharing their stories of courageous action..
“Today, as part of Women’s History Month and in commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, Valerie Jarrett and I welcomed four remarkable women organizers to the White House. On a panel in front of more than 100 labor leaders, we invited them to share how each is organizing to make a difference in their workplaces, in their communities and in the lives of their families.
We were honored to have heard the hopeful stories of these brave women. They were a reminder of the obstacles that must be overcome in the workplace and of the very hard work we still have to do on behalf of all working people.”
