Happy Equal Pay Day!

Don't forget--April 8th is Equal Pay Day. Download the AAUW Toolkit to spread the word, and read more about the gender pay gap here.

Sheelah Kolhatkan in BusinessWeek suggests that in order to close the gender gap employers need to offer flexibility. Read more here and share your thoughts on how to close the gap at AAUW Colorado eNetwork Facebook Page.
