Mayor Megan Barry introduced a new Council on Gender Equity at a press conference yesterday morning, revealing a 45-person group that will identify gender inequity problems and recommend solutions on a range of issues, including access to health and child care, economic opportunities and family services. The all-volunteer council will be chaired by DVL Seigenthaler head Ronald Roberts, the Nashville Business Journal reports. Members include Pat Shea, head of the YWCA; rock icon Jack White, who owns Third Man Records; Juvenile Judge Sheila Calloway; and Brenda Gadd, the TBA's public policy coordinator.
