Equal Pay Day | AAUW

Equal Pay Day | AAUW

Equal pay for equal work. Let's talk… Such an easy, straightforward concept, right? Let's not get into the minutia of “everyone does a job differently” and strengths vs weakness; let's just address the fact that women, flat out, in almost every profession, are paid less than men for the same role. It's not a subjective statement; the wage gap is a proven thing (like global warming, but we won't get into that today). Because we can only change the world through our actions, take action.
