Press Release:

    The NC Office of State Human Resources invites state employees and the public to recognize the 49th anniversary of Women's Equality Day with a special virtual program featuring Gloria Steinem, the renowned American journalist, political activist and leader in the global feminist movement.

    Presented by the Diversity and Workforce Services Division, "A Conversation with Gloria Steinem: The State of Women," will be streamed live via YouTube from 1-2:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 30. Register today to receive a reminder notification shortly before the event begins.

    "Governor Cooper has made it a priority of his Administration that our state's 5.2 million women deserve equal opportunity, equal pay, and equal respect," said State Human Resources Director Barbara Gibson. "These are among the topics that Gloria Steinem has championed throughout her life, as well."

    NC Department of Administration Secretary Pamela Cashwell will interview Steinem and the live broadcast will include American Sign Language interpreters. If interested viewers are unable to join the live event, it will be available later for on-demand viewing at the YouTube link and at OSHR's Webinars on Demand page. Previously recorded webinars may be viewed on the OSHR website as well.

    As Steinem, a 2019 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, famously remarked, "A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men."

    Steinem's trailblazing career began in the 1960s and '70s, as a founder of New York and Ms. magazines, the Feminist Majority Foundation, the National Women's Political Caucus and the Ms. Foundation for Women. Decades later, the still-outspoken advocate has continued to make significant contributions - writing books, producing documentaries, and supporting budding activists and organizations.

The next question is: Why is government at the state level sponsoring this?

How much of the public's money, and the People's time are they willing to waste to prove an unnecessary, and belabored point?

If people are doing an equal job they should be being paid equally. If men and women are equally qualified to do a job both should be considered on merit of who will do the best in the job that needs doing, not because of their sex. Men and woman are not equal in many regards so declare them equal, IMO yes is woke. When you mix Steinem into it, it proves the woke point.

Would this be considered Woke?
