Full House Hears About Equal Pay

The Marin Women’s Political Action Committee had a full house for our Monday, April 20, dinner and program covering the topic of equal pay for women. Speakers were State Assemblyman Marc Levine and Jennifer Reisch, Legal Director of SF Equal Rights Advocates.
Both speakers were very articulate on SB358, which addresses persisting inequities in women’s pay and the reasons why it has been a long time coming for women to receive equal pay for doing work comparable to that of their male colleagues. Also addressed were
several other bills pending in the California State Legislature on issues affecting women and their families including raising the minimum wage. Levine also noted that many of the top positions in the Legislature are held by women. The event was held at the
Redwoods Presbyterian Church in Larkspur. Dinner was provided by Barbara Matas.

Announcement of Endorsed Candidates

At an recent evening Candidates Forum well attended by members and the public, the Marin Women’s Political Action Committee endorsed several women candidates for the November 5 election.  We also recommended three male candidates.
