Equal Pay Day Letter to the Editor

Using AAUW’s website it is really easy to send a letter to the editor of your local paper.  You select most of the content and you know that the facts are researched and correct.  I sent one to the Sun Journal in New Bern and will let you know if it is published.  The details of “how to” are in the public policy section.  Mary

Tuesday, April 25 is Equal Pay Day. To match men’s earnings for 2005, women have to work from January 2005 to April 2006—an extra four months. Equal Pay Day takes place each year on a Tuesday in April, symbolizing the point in the next week and year to which a woman must work to achieve pay equity. Her male counterpart must work five days a week for twelve months, whereas she will work seven days a week for sixteen months to earn equivalent wages.Take Action!
