The Cape Women’s Coalition Needs YOU

Conference: Ensuring Economic Security for All Women and Their Families.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn about efforts to create or change policies for women. Add your voice.

“Our goal is to develop a policy framework that serves to coordinate the efforts of all those who are actively working to increase the economic security of women and their families. This includes stakeholders from the public, private and non-profit sectors.” Get involved. Registration and information.

The first biennial New England Women’s Policy Conference, held at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in the fall of 2014, was linked to the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s Presidential Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW). The commission released its report to President Kennedy, the Congress, the Senate, and the nation in October of 1963. That report criticized the inequality women faced in many areas of American society and made a number of key recommendations on how to improve women’s lives. Unfortunately, over 50 years later, the inequality documented in 1963 persists with only modest improvement as we convene our second biennial conference. It remains striking how many recommendations from 1963 refer to issues and public policies that women are still fighting for today, from equal pay for equal work to affordable child care to paid family leave. At the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy (CWPPP) at UMass Boston – the hosts of this conference – we understand the importance of measuring women’s progress over the last five decades and renewing our commitment to making more substantial advances in the decades ahead. We will not wait another 50 years for equality for women and economic justice for all!
