You deserve to be paid fairly. It's that simple.
Across race and ethnicity, women in the United States are paid just 80 cents for every dollar paid to men. That’s more than $10,000 less per year — the equivalent of more than one year of food, 14 months of child care or the full cost of tuition and fees at a two-year community college.
For women of color, double binds of race and gender lead to even more punishing wage gaps. At the current glacial pace of change, women of color will have to wait more than a century to reach pay parity with white men.
Women and families can’t — and won’t — wait for fair pay. With your help, we will make wage discrimination a thing of the past and win the fair and family friendly policies that will help close the wage gap for good.
