Occupational sexism is happening every day, and despite what many people think, it's not improving. For every dollar that a man makes, a woman makes 72 cents, which can be very harmful in the long run. Sexism in the workplace needs to stop now. We need to have equal pay between genders, stop sexual and verbal harassment, and much more.

We need to make a change, and this petition will bring that to the attention of Massachusetts senators, Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey. Your gender shouldn't determine your wealth, your actions should.

In Massachusetts, there is a law titled, "The Massachusetts Fair Employment Practices Act (FEPA)" that prohibits discrimination based on sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation, but based on the fact that women in MA earn 83% of what men earn, that law doesn't seem to work very well. The senators have the power to enforce this law better, and yet they don't seem to be doing much. By signing this petition, you will be helping all women in Massachusetts by bringing to the attention of the senators that the FEPA isn't being properly enforced. According to a TUC report in 2016, one in five women don’t report sexual harassment. This can happen because women don’t want to lose their jobs. A solution to this would be to make a competition or give out an award to the company with the least sexism.
