Paycheck Fairness

Women earn just 82 cents for every dollar White men earn—and the pay disparity is worse for Black, Hispanic, and Indigenous women.

Take Action

Email your senators and ask them to support the Paycheck Fairness Act of 2021.

This gender gap exists across nearly all occupations, including female-dominated professions such as education.

The Paycheck Fairness Act of 2021 (S. 205/H.R. 7) will help end these disparities and show our students that we believe in equal pay for equal work.
