WLP staff have been making the media rounds and we thought we’d let you know! First, our executive director, Carol Tracy, was quoted in this Philadelphia Inquirer column about Governor Rendell’s sexist remarks about Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano.
Carol Tracy, of the Women’s Law Project, said the remark was typical of Rendell.
“It’s always a double-edged sword with the governor. It was both insensitive and there’s underlying truth to it.
“An important issue that weighs far more heavily on women than men is the impact of family responsibilities in the workplace,” Tracy said.
“We don’t talk about it enough. It has limited opportunities for women; it has limited the contributions that many women can make to government, to business, because our employment practices are so hostile to working families.”
And WLP staff attorney Tatyana Margolin was profiled in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Friday.
“There’s nobody in Western Pennsylvania doing what we do, the way we do it, whether it’s Title IX, reproductive rights or fighting domestic abuse.”
