Women of the PA House, Senate take a stand against sexual harassment and abuse

(Dec 11, 2017)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 11 – Women of the Pennsylvania House and Senate joined Monday to take a stand against sexual harassment and abuse and discuss proposed legislation to better protect victims. “The recent stories from around the country and right here in the PA legislature show that sexual harassment and abuse have been overlooked for far too long,” said Rep. Margo Davidson, D- Delaware, chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus. “We’re here to say enough is enough. It is long past time that we step up to protect women and ensure that harassment is not only taken seriously, but that women feel safe enough to come forward as soon as possible. We also stand together to say that the culture, which appears pervasive, of sexual misconduct in the workplace and domestic abuse at home will not be brushed aside, swept under the rug or tolerated on any level at all, any longer.” Women of the House and Senate stood together Monday to discuss legislation being introduced that would better protect women and all victims of harassment and abuse. Rep. Leanne Krueger-Braneky is introducing legislation to create the #METOO PA General Assembly (Member and Employee Training and Oversight on PA General Assembly) Act. The legislation would ban non-disclosure agreements that mask the names of General Assembly members who harass, prohibit General Assembly members from using taxpayer funds to pay settlement costs, and provide for other reforms.

Hill-Evans collects diaper donations to raise awareness of need

(Sep 22, 2017)

YORK, Sept. 22 – State Rep. Carol Hill-Evans will collect donated diapers in her district office from Monday to Oct. 6, as she joins other state legislators in an effort to raise awareness of what is known as the “diaper gap.” Hill-Evans, D-York, joined state Rep. Rosita Youngblood, D-Phila., to introduce a resolution marking Sept. 25 to Oct. 1 as “Diaper Need Awareness Week” in Pennsylvania. One in three mothers find it difficult to provide diapers for their children, which might cause babies or toddlers to wear one diaper for a day or longer, which poses health risks. Incontinent adults also can have difficulty affording disposable undergarments, which can cause them to face serious medical issues. “It’s heartbreaking to think that a mom or dad might have to make a choice between paying the bills or buying diapers for a child,” Hill-Evans said. “Many community organizations are working to try to fill the ‘diaper gap,’ and I hope we can help by raising awareness of the need that exists.” The fourth annual Diaper Need Awareness Week Diaper Drive will be held Monday to Oct. 6 at the state Capitol. Donations also will be accepted at Hill-Evans’ district office, 53 E. North St., Suite 3, York. The disposable diapers and wipes packages must be sealed. Donated diapers will be given to a Pennsylvania diaper bank registered with the National Diaper Bank Network. Read more
