Equal Pay Day

Yesterday was Equal Pay Day, symbolizing the day, more than three months into the year, when women’s earnings on average finally catch up to what their male colleagues made back in 2015.

Women deserve equal pay for equal work. It’s that simple – but in 21st century America, women are still earning just 79 cents on average for every dollar a man makes.

It’s time to close the gender pay gap for good. Chip in $10 right now and join Kathleen in standing up for working women!

Closing the pay gap isn’t just about fairness for women stuck earning less than men for equal work – it’s about unleashing women’s full economic potential. When women are paid fairly, they have more money to spend in our local economies and invest in their futures, and that benefits all of us.

Join Kathleen in fighting to make equal pay a reality, and Equal Pay Day a thing of the past: Make a donation today!
