FOR UNEQUAL COOKIE SALES ON
GENDER PAY GAP DAY, APRIL 4
We have a fun day planned for April 4th, Gender Pay Gap Day.
This is the day that demonstrates how far into the year women have to work before earning what men earn, based on 2016 data. On average, women earn 80% of what men earn. The gap is worse for mothers and women of color and it grows with age. AAUW was instrumental in getting an equal pay law passed in California last year. Only 6 states have such a law.
In order to get the conversation going about this key AAUW issue, we will be selling cookies which represent the 80% that women earn at key sites in Petaluma.
We need bakers and sellers. A recipe for the sugar cookie and a cookie cutter will be provided. We hope to sell at 3 sites in the community that day for about 2 hours at each site.
If you can bake or sell that day, please contact Pat Riley at 707-775-8163 (text or call) or email at email@example.com.
It will be fun!
