On Tuesday, Senator Karen Spilka received the Legislator of the Year Award from the Young Democrats of Massachusetts Women’s Caucus at the group’s annual Ladies in Blue fundraiser. The event was held at the Bell in Hand Tavern in Boston, and money raised will benefit a scholarship for a Young Democrat to participate in the Emerge Massachusetts candidate training program.

“The Young Democrats are a terrific group of activists calling attention to important issues. They are our future leaders, and it was my honor to join them to celebrate strong, powerful women at all levels,” said Senator Spilka. “I’m also pleased to support the Emerge program, which encourages more young women to make their voices heard.”

Senator Spilka discussed several of her bills this legislative session to advance equality and opportunity for women, including paid family leave, a resolution to increase the number of women on boards and pay equity legislation.
