"COVID has shone a spotlight on the fact that women are the shock absorbers for society's crises."
-Fairfield County Forum Participant
Women’s voices have been heard! The data study results are in. Covid-19 has directly made an impact on women’s lives: their employment, pay, healthcare, mental health, safety, education, career, housing and food security.
You are invited to attend an important discussion and to learn the economic impact of Covid-19 on Connecticut women on Thursday, May 13th at 7:00 pm. Guest speaker, Tina Courpas, Executive Director of the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women in Connecticut, will discuss the findings of the impact of the pandemic on significant issues in women’s lives. The PCSW was formed in 2016 as a continuation of the original state agency to provide expert research on key areas, carry out initiatives, and provide outreach in areas that are significant to women in Ct. PCSW is a “bipartisan organization with a non-partisan mandate, reflecting the broad diversity of Connecticut’s women.”
