WE are Women Employed. And WE are on a Mission.

Since 1973, WE have been creating fundamental, systemic change for working women. But WE haven’t come this far just to come this far. 

WE are doubling down on rising up. We’re growing the economic power of women in Illinois—especially those in low or unpaid work, and Black and Latina/x women. We’re asking you to join us.

A fairer tomorrow starts today. Support WE and support all working women.
