Equal Pay Day Events in April

Equal Pay Day was created in 1996 as a day to show the difference between what men and women are paid in the United States.  The day symbolizes how far into 2014 women must work to earn what men earned in 2013.  Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay.  The wage gap is even greater for women of color.


While women professionals are doing better than many other working women, the gap still exists, and SCWLA supports the efforts of the business community, legislators, jurists and professional organizations to close the gap.


In an effort to educate our members of the continuing problem, SCWLA is hosting a series of after-hours events across the state in the month of April where information will be available documenting the degree of the problem in our state and nation.   Refreshments will be served in a "happy hour" style to encourage discussion and networking opportunities.  We hope you can join us for the event in your area. The following are the dates and locations:
