Meet Some of the Women Attending the White House Working Families Summit

Meet Some of the Women Attending the White House Working Families Summit

Today more than 250 women workers and labor participants are in Washington, D.C., at AFL-CIO headquarters preparing to share their stories at the White House Working Families summit Monday. 

Women are coming together and improving their workplaces by fighting for policies that include everything from raising the tipped and minimum wage, making equal pay for equal work a reality, and demanding more consistent and adequate hours in retail scheduling, to making sure everyone has access to affordable child care and can receive basic workplace accommodations during pregnancy. These women workers know collective bargaining and collective action are important for achieving workplace policies that work for women and families. 

Check out some of these women's stories below and follow the hashtag #WFSpeakUp for updates from the summit.
