Text PLEDGE to 21333 to join AAUW’s Day of Action on April 10

Next week, advocates across the country will observe Equal Pay Day 2018, the date that symbolizes how far women must work into 2018 to bring home the same pay as men did in just 2017 alone.

While the gender pay gap is nothing to celebrate, observing Equal Pay Day is a powerful way to raise awareness about the fight for fair pay — and that’s why we’re calling on you to take action.

Join AAUW on April 10 in a national Day of Action to close the gender pay gap by texting theword PLEDGE to phone number 21333 on your cell phone.

On Equal Pay Day – April 10, we’ll send you a reminder text with a toll-free phone number to reach your state legislators and demand pay equity. When you use our toll-free phone line, you’ll hear a simple call script before being connected directly to the office of your state legislator.

Closing the gender pay gap isn’t just the fair or right thing to do; it’s good for families, businesses, and the economy. That’s why we are joining together to demand that legislators pass strong pay equity bills in every state.

Let us know you’re committed to fighting for fair pay — text PLEDGE to phone number 21333 now!

CNN: It’s getting even harder to be a woman

Here’s a shocking idea: Gender inequality is getting worse, not better.

The United States has fallen to 49 out of 144 countries in the World Economic Forum‘s new global ranking.

Gender inequality actually worsened around the world in 2017, according to a new report from the World Economic Forum.
