CURRENT ISSUE OF THE LEADER
April 9 is Equal Pay Day
A day that represents the date in the 2013 through which women must work to match what men were paid in 2012.
AAUW’s recent research report, Graduating to a Pay Gap: The Earnings of Women and Men One Year after College Graduation,demonstrated that a pay gap begins for women just one year after their college graduation. AAUW’s National Student Advisory Council members are planning Equal Pay Day events for their campuses, and so can you! This year, make a commitment to share AAUW’s research on pay equity with at least one college woman and encourage her to get involved through our Action Network. Don’t forget to invite your local e-student affiliates and C/U representatives to your Equal Pay Day events.
