Connecticut Transportation Committee Gets Lesson In Gender Equality From 11-Year-Old Girl
The Transportation Committee doesn’t often take testimony from 11-year-olds, but that didn’t stop West Hartford resident Isabella Glynn from telling lawmakers Wednesday she thought “men at work” construction signs sent the wrong message about gender expectations.
“I’m an 11-year-old girl and I know that men would not like it if the work signs said ‘women at work,’” she said, getting a laugh out of those in attendance at transportation public hearing.
Glynn was testifying along with Teresa Younger, executive director of the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women, in support of legislation that would require the use of gender neutral work signs by the Transportation Department.
