Our mission is to advance women toward full equality in all areas of life, and to promote rights and opportunities for all women throughout their lives.
It has been an exciting and active period for the MCSW: having been strongly involved in advocating for pay equity - among other legislative priorities - we are thrilled that the landmark Equal Pay Act passed in August 2016, and comes into effect on July 1, 2018. Since then, we have led numerous equal pay education panels for employers, employees, and those seeking work; held numerous public hearings across the Commonwealth; heralded the creation of two new regional Commissions on the Status of Women (CSWs); proposed legislation to create three more regional CSWs (which would close the gap on state coverage) and continued supporting existing ones; hosted our sixth annual Advocacy Day at the State House; and in June 2017, we honored more than 115 Unsung Heroines from across the Commonwealth.
