The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap
You’ve probably heard that men are paid more than women are paid over their lifetimes. But what does that mean? Are women paid less because they choose lower-paying jobs? Is it because more women work part time than men do? Or is it because women have more care giving responsibilities? And what, exactly, does gender bias have to do with paychecks?
AAUW’s The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap succinctly addresses these issues by going beyond the widely reported 80 percent statistic.
Know Your Rights: Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault under Title IX
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.

Local school districts, colleges and universities, for-profit schools, career and technical education agencies, libraries, and museums are all covered under Title IX.

Mother’s Equal Pay Day
Each May, families around the country celebrate Mother’s Day, honoring the special women in their lives. Yet after all the praise we heap on moms, did you know that many can expect barriers in the workforce? Mothers typically are paid only 73 cents for every dollar fathers are paid. It’s called the “motherhood penalty,” and it’s a persistent problem for all women, not just mothers, working in America. This month Mother’s Equal Pay Day is May 23. Read more.
