Blog Today For Equal Pay Day

AAUW (American Association of University Women) is encouraging all bloggers to blog for Equal Pay Day. What is Equal Pay Day?

"To match men's earnings for 2008, women have to work from January 2008 to April 2009 — an extra four months. In recognition of this inequity, Equal Pay Day will be marked on April 28, 2009."

Actions you can take to help change this inequity include:

Wear RED on Equal Pay Day to show how pay inequity keeps women in the red!

Tell your senators: Keep the Change
