On Equal Pay Day 2023, we’re drawing attention to the fact that the Gender Pay Gap has barely budged in a generation. The most recent update of AAUW’s signature report, The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap, shows that in 2021 women were paid just 84 cents for every dollar paid to men when comparing full-time, year-round workers. However, when the calculation included all workers, the earnings discrepancy is substantially larger: Women took home only 77 cents for every dollar men did. Join us in urging lawmakers to take immediate action to close the pay gap once and for all!
