What are you doing for Equal Pay Day?

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.

And there’s more — click here for a dozen suggestions.

  1. I got started late for our Statesville Branch but did manage to get permission to use the Proclamation used by the Lakeland, CO. Branch and faxed it to our mayor for the Tuesday, April 28 announcement. I have to leave it to my fellow members to reap the media attention the Day deserves as I will be out of town. Pat Abell

  2. I participated in the “tweet chat” Sunday night and saw part of Lisa’s presentations on Monday and Tuesday. She did a great job as always.

    I was also monitoring activity on the Facebook Equal Pay Day event – more than 2000 people were “touched” by that.
