Women’s economic security will not be a reality until women receive equal pay and equal opportunity:
- Today, on average, women earn only 80 cents for every dollar earned by men. African American women earn only 60 cents, Native American women earn 58 cents, Latinas earn 54 cents, Asian American women earn 83 cents
- Women and people of color are still underrepresented in engineering and the sciences, in law enforcement, in the skilled trades, and in corporate leadership
- And, there’s currently no federal law preventing discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity
It’s time for powerful change!
