Women's Contributions to U.S. Infrastructure: An Essential Feminist Issue w/ NOW
Date Wednesday September 22
Time 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorNational Organization of Women (NOW)
Location Details
Online event
Join NOW and special guests in a town hall event to discuss how women are an important part of this country's infrastructure systems.

Infrastructure supports how our society functions and enhances our standard of living. When we think of infrastructure, we often think about things like bridges, roads, and power grids. But infrastructure is much more than that. It’s access to public health services, paid family leave, and even affordable childcare. And it’s a feminist issue.

We need to put women at the forefront of the conversation when it comes to infrastructure. Women, especially women of color, are the ones who have been most affected by the failures of our infrastructure systems. They’re also the ones who have the experiences and knowledge to come up with the solutions to fix it.

When: Wednesday, September 22 @ 3:30 PM PT (6:30 PM ET)

Where: Online via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_BZ_UOi4LRsCeKibjr09Mxg
