“Making Life Fairer For All Women…”

Today, feminist author and activist Gloria Steinem delivered a powerful message to Council Speaker Christine Quinn in the New York Times, calling for a vote on the paid sick days bill.

“Making life fairer for all women seems more important than breaking a barrier for one woman,” Ms. Steinem said, adding that the bill would ensure that working mothers could better take care of sick children without fear of losing their jobs.
