  Women's Equality Day

On Aug 18, 1920, America ratified the 19th Amendment, giving Women the right to vote, but not all women. It took another 45 years for Women of Color to get the vote. Join us to celebrate WOMEN'S EQUALITY DAY: Honoring Those Who Fought Before ... And Continuing the Fight

  Editor's Note

We're looking for women who want to share their experience balancing a full-time job in technology with the added responsibility of childcare in COVID. Please contact liz@witi.com if you would like to receive an email or schedule a Zoom interview with questions about how social isolation, remote work, and virtual schooling has affected your lifestyle.
