Demand Equal Pay for Women

There are more than 65,000,000 women working in the United States. But did you know that the average female worker earns only

81 cents

for every dollar that the average male makes? It's true. Hover over your state to see how women's earnings stack up where you live:

Arm yourself with the facts!

Each year, the average woman in the United States earns

$8,060

less than the average man.

$310

is missing from the average woman's bi-weekly paycheck. If she had that money, it would pay 16.8% of the average consumer's expenses.

The average woman has to work an extra

3,384 days

after a man has retired to equal his career earnings (assuming a 40 year career). That's almost 10 extra years!

If all women were paid equally, it would add

$523,900,000,000

to the consumer economy each year.

How you can help

1. If you're an employer, pay all of your employees equally.

2. If you have a job or you're looking for a job, know what you're worth and demand equal pay.

3. Spread the word!
