Did you know that women hold nearly half of today’s jobs and are a growing number of family breadwinners, yet we still earn about 78 cents* for every dollar that the average American man earns? For women of color, the gap is even more stark (and a gap exists for men of color, too).

Pittsburgh takes steps toward gender wage equality with a month full of events! Support the cause by shopping at 76<100, taking part in “The Great Debate”  and becoming a member of the Closing the Gap initiative.

76<100

Sponsored by the Women and Girls Foundation, the 76<100 pop-up shop will hold an opening reception on Friday, April 3 from 6-10 p.m.  (This is instead of their annual Equal Pay Day Rally in Market Square.) The shop raises awareness for gender wage equality through “pay what you’re paid” pricing.  Male shoppers will be charged 100 percent of an item’s retail price, while women will be charged 76 percent to highlight the Pennsylvania wage gap, in which women earn 76 percent of men’s wages. The shop will be open throughout the month of April, Tuesday through Sunday, from 12-7 p.m. It carries ceramics, textiles, publications, art prints, stationery and more, all created by women artists and makers across America. Check out the website for a list of artists and special events.

“The Great Debate”

Can nonprofits afford to be worried about wage disparity? The Women and Girls Foundation sponsors another event, for which the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management opens up this question. “The Great Debate” is from 5:30 – 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 14  at the Twentieth Century Club in Oakland. The 14th is actually Equal Pay Day — the date that symbolizes how long the average American women must work into the new year to equal the earnings of her male counterparts in the previous year. Listen to speakers from either side, and see if you’re persuaded one way or the other. A vote will be held prior to and post debate. Register online or purchase tickets by calling 412.397.6000. More information can also be found here.

Closing the Gap: 50 Years Seeking Equal Pay

April is chock full of events discussing the wage gap, but becoming a member of the Closing the Gap initiative shows your support year-round. The initiative explores why the gap persists, and arms women with information and skills to assist in earning fair pay. Register as a member to learn more about the wage gap and how to help eradicate it.

Do your part to support equality in the workplace by attending these events and engaging with the concept of the wage gap.
