Thank you to the hundreds of people who signed our petition in 2020 to support Article 7 at the Fall Special Town Meeting. 

We were able to raise awareness of the need to increase the visibility of women, whose contributions to the community are less visible than the contributions made by men.

Town Meeting members voted by an overwhelming majority of 165 - 3, and many people shared their reasons in the public debate on the virtual Town Meeting floor. (Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Town Meeting was held in the virtual platform provided by Zoom.)
