women need #equalpay now

Power. Protections. Equal Pay.

Now is the time to address equity in wages. This means increasing pay transparency, disrupting occupational segregation, eliminating discrimination, increasing access to paid leave, child and elder care, and creating pathways for women to enter into good jobs in order to build an inclusive economy where we can all thrive. Together, we can close the gender and racial wage gap.
