Today is Equal Pay Day - Send a Letter to Your Elected Representatives Now!

Patricia Arquette with Equal Rights Advocates

Apr 12, 2016 — It’s Equal Pay Day, the day each year where women’s salaries catch up to what men made the previous year. I am in Washington talking to Congress about how the ERA will address this issue, and you can help. Send a letter to your elected representatives by clicking here It’s easy: just fill in your zip code and a letter will be sent to your Senators, Representative and Governor.

The issue of equal pay is fundamental in the fight for gender equality in the United States. On average, we’ll have to work 13 more years over the course of our careers to catch up. If you’re African American, it will take even longer (nearly 28 years). If you’re Latina, longer still (over 33 years). That is why it is so important that we raise our voices today and show our elected representatives that it is time they ACT to ensure equal pay for all women across the country.
