The Hidden Side of Women’s Lives in Our Community
September 26, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Brattleboro area residents are invited to share their story at the Vermont Commission on Women’s Listening Project event hosted by area Commissioners at Brooks Memorial Library on Wednesday, September 26th from 6:00 -7:30 pm.
“This an opportunity for community members to shape the work of our Commission,” said Brattleboro Commissioner, Kerry Secrest. “Brattleboro is one of three locations where we’re gathering Vermonters together. We want to listen to the real world experiences of women, their stories, the challenges they encounter in their everyday lives.”
This event is an extension of the Commission’s statewide Listening Project survey. The survey asks what needs aren’t being met for Vermont women, what most affects their abilities to provide for themselves or their families, and what can be done to help. The survey has been distributed at events around the state, by organizations aligned with the Commission’s mission to advance rights and opportunities for women, and online at women.vermont.gov.
A report with Listening Project findings and recommendations will be presented to policymakers in 2019. Commission director Cary Brown and Commissioners Emilie Kornheiser of Brattleboro and Carol Buchdahl of Saxton’s River will also be present.
