Wednesday, June 10th is the 46th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act ensuring “equal pay for equal work.”  In honor of the anniversary, ask your Senators to co-sponsor the Paycheck Fairness Act (S 182). The Paycheck Fairness Act will update and strengthen the Equal Pay Act, closing loop holes and improving the law’s effectiveness. 

Write your Senator tomorrow using the BPW/USA Advocacy Center. Just enter you zip code and click on “Write Your Legislators”.

    BPW President Dr. Minnie Miles was at the signing of the Equal Pay Act back in ’63. That is her in the black hat, second from the right. Nice gloves 🙂
