Fair pay for women, pregnancy discrimination and the recent Supreme Court ruling on Hobby Lobby were topics of discussion on Monday at the Roswell Public Library.
The Southwest Women’s Law Center of Albuquerque sponsored a discussion on “Women’s Economic Fairness in the Workplace.”
Featured speakers included Pamelya Herndon, executive director of the Southwest Women’s Law Center; Paige Duhamel, staff attorney for SWLC; and Dr. Susan Scott, who is both a medical doctor and an attorney. She also serves on the SWLC board of directors.
“Ask your elected representatives if they support fair pay for women,” Herndon said. “It takes civic engagement to create change, and if people are running for office, ask them where they stand on these issues. Ask if they support equal pay, or pregnancy fairness.”
