Our Council on Women and Girls is fighting back. Our members are the leaders of our State agencies, who will make sure that every policy enacted and each program created takes into account the experiences of women and girls and tries to further advance equality in our state. We also have a Steering Committee
comprised of leaders outside of State government from academia, advocacy, business, media, and non-profit space who will inform and direct the Council’s work (Refinery29's own Global Editor-in-Chief Christene Barberich is a member). We will focus on education, economic opportunity, workforce equity, leadership, health care, child care, safety, and STEM.
