Review for Women Employed, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Best organization that ever happened to me and the working women of Chicago as well as the nation. OK, I'll admit it, I joined in 1973. I was seeing the inequality of the workplace and needed to do something. While working as a bureaucrat I had more rights and freedoms than many other working women, yet I was only one of the two "professionally" graded female employees in my agency. Women Employed helped me find my voice and I was able to work to improve my field as well as other fields. Previous reviews are correct, Women Employed also helped me find some life long friends. I am forever grateful for both.
