Monday was a day for Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman to make a point about equality. Wyman, a Tolland resident, joined Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to issue statements in support of Women’s Equality Day.
The day was established in 1971 by a Joint Resolution of Congress.
“A lifetime of earning less pay not only means a smaller paycheck, but also means a retirement with less security for a woman and her family,” Wyman said. “That is a fundamental economic disadvantage that is clearly unfair and needs to be dealt with so women can better support their families today and retire on equal footing with men.”
Aug. 26 marks the day in 1920 when passage of the 19th Amendment ensured American women had the right to vote.
