Effective March 26, 2020 the American Association of University Women (AAUW) Marysville-Yuba City branch regrets that the May 2, 2020 Garden Tour has been canceled due to the Corona virus emergency.

1.Fact Sheet: The Paycheck Fairness Act of 2019
“The Paycheck Fairness Act is essential to eradicating practices that have perpetuated the pay gap for far too long. In 2019, the idea that we still don’t have equal pay for equal work is nothing short of outrageous. AAUW urges the 116th Congress to take this important step towards pay equity with the swift passage of the bill.”
— Kim Churches, CEO, American Association of University Women
2. Get Paid What You’re Worth
AAUW’s renowned The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap report finds women are still paid just 80 cents for every dollar paid to a man! We can change that with AAUW’s multipronged economy security initiative: by changing laws, encouraging employers to improve workplace cultures and practices, and empowering women to negotiate to their financial futures by making our Work Smart program available nationwide.
