Remember ...

(And Free Cone Day)

Equal Pay Day is April 12th

The Vermont Commission on Women will join Business and Professional Women, the League of Women Voters, members of the Women's Caucus of the legislature, and other policy leaders at the Vermont State House for Equal Pay Day the morning of  Tuesday, April 12th

Women's organizations observe Equal Pay Day each April, symbolizing how far into the new year the average American woman would have to work to earn what the average American man did in the previous year, due to the gender wage gap. 

Median annual income for women working full-time in Vermont is $37,000, $7,000 less than the median annual salary earned by men. This translated to a 16% wage gap in Vermont.

" Where was the lawyer? The accountant? The surgeon? How was there space for both a bento box and a single fried coconut shrimp, and yet women were restricted to a smattering of tired, beauty-centric roles?"
