Who We Are

DATELINE, Chicago, Illinois, 1973. Workplace discrimination is the norm. Women routinely endure unfair and hostile working conditions in every industry. A small group of women gather to discuss forming an organization to improve opportunities and working conditions in downtown Chicago. None of the founders could have envisioned the changes that would eventually occur nor the role Women Employed would play.

Women Employed has literally changed the world of work for women.
