This Equal Pay Day, Support Women and Girls Who Are Making a Difference!

Today is Equal Pay Day, the day that marks how far women must work in the new year to catch up to what men earned last year. There are a number of activities scheduled across the country, including a TweetStorm at 2PM that will use the hashtags #EqualPayDay and #NoMadMenPay. As part of Equal Pay Day, President Obama is expected to announce two new executive orders on equal pay, while the Senate plans to take up the Paycheck Fairness Act today or tomorrow.

Closing the wage gap is important to all families, not just to women. Each year, families lose the equivalent of 89 weeks worth of food or 3,000 gallons of gasoline because of unequal pay. Today is a day that you can take action on this issue by speaking to your legislators and by supporting women and girls who are working to make change in our region.

This Equal Pay Day, please make plans to join Friends of the Delaware County Women's Commission in paying tribute to Delaware County women at the Friends' Annual Dinner on May 15. Tickets and ads are available now - you can download the order form here!
