There’s a lot of AAUW activity around next Tuesday’s Equal Pay Day. [Women need to work from 1/1/2008 to 4/28/2009 to earn what men did during 2008.] Webinars, online activities, and letters to newspapers, and other many suggestions for projects in your communities are all part of AAUW activities across the country.
Here’s the complete list that includes:
- Watch a live webcast of a panel discussion about Equal Pay Day on Monday, April 27 at 11 a.m. EDT. AAUW’s Director of Public Policy and Government Relations Lisa Maatz will be on the panel, which will be moderated by longtime AAUW friend and Paycheck Fairness Act sponsor Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT)
- Send an Equal Pay Day e-card to friends and family to spread the word.
- Contact Sen. Hagan to ask her to support the Paycheck Fairness Act.
