Event Description:

On Tuesday, April 8, mark Equal Pay Day with a patio party outside AAUW’s national office.

Join us as we observe the symbolic day when women’s pay finally catches up to men’s from last year. (It takes a few extra months thanks to the 23 percent gender wage gap.)

We’ll have a secret salary garden to help shed some light on the salary process and a pep talk from AAUW Vice President of Government Relations Lisa Maatz. There will be a wallet-friendly cash bar (beer and wine) and munchies to enjoy while we gripe — and discuss how to change things.

Food truck lovers, Neat Meat will also be there with happy hour prices! Don’t worry, they have vegetarian dishes too.

Update: Fair pay champion Lilly Ledbetter will be in Washington to bring attention to the executive orders President Obama is signing on Tuesday and the first Senate vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act in this Congress. Stop by our patio party to meet Lilly Ledbetter of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act!
