AAUW’s Equal Pay Day unHappy Hour
Time: 5:30–7:30 p.m. ET
Location: Sauf Haus, 1216 18th St NW, Suite B, Washington, D.C.
Tuesday, April 4, is Equal Pay Day, the symbolic day when American women’s pay “catches up” to what men took home by December 31 of the previous year. The date represents the fact that women working full time, year-round in the United States are typically paid just 80 percent of what men are paid, which amounts to a gap of 20 percent. At the current rate, the gender pay gap won’t close until 2152 —and we’re not happy about it!
Help AAUW “celebrate” Equal Pay Day with the best “unhappy hour” in D.C.! Twenty percent of all drink sales will be donated to AAUW and our tireless work to close the gender pay gap. Bring your friends and colleagues because we’ll award a special prize to the group with the most people. RSVP for your chance to win!
