April 20th: Equal Pay Day Rally in Pittsburgh

Via the Women and Girls Foundation:

April 20th is National Equal Pay Day. This day symbolizes how much longer a woman has to work to earn the same amount of money that a man has earned the previous year. Nationally, women earn about 77 cents for every dollar a man earns but in Pennsylvania women earn only 75 cents while in Pittsburgh they earn even less: 74 cents.

Every year the Women and Girls Foundation organizes a rally downtown to mobilize the community on the issue of gender wage gap. Here is the information for this year's WGF Equal Pay DayRally:

2010 Equal Pay Day Rally

WHEN: April 20, 2010, 12 noon to 1pm

WHERE: Mellon Square Park (the park between the Regional Enterprise Towers and the Omni William Penn Hotel)

When Sarah Palin spoke at a campaign rally in Beaver, in 2008, my wife stood outside the gate with a sign that read:

"Sarah, will you take 75% of what Dick Cheney makes?"
