The Women’s Rights Task Force reports and recommendations were approved today at the 2018 LWV-VA Council. Here are the explanation and the motion that were presented:
This Task Force has substantially completed the strict charge of its work to review the League’s current position and has found that the specified elements in the position have been satisfied by changes in the Code of Virginia. The Task Force has identified issues associated with sexual harassment and is seeking authorization to continue work on a draft position for action at the League’s 2019 Convention.
On the recommendation of the Board, I move that the Task Force on Women’s Rights be authorized to proceed with recommendations to update the current position and to include sexual harassment and to bring such recommendations for action at the 2019 Convention.
The Women’s Rights Task Force will continue its work. If you want to find out more about the Study or to join in the work, contact: Program Director Anne Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
