Join the McLean County Equal Pay Coalition as we rally against gender pay disparity!

Guest speaker: Dr. Kyle Ciani, Ph.D. is an associate professor in the Department of History and core faculty in the Women’s Gender Studies program at Illinois State University.

IN 2016, WOMEN IN ILLINOIS WERE PAID 79 CENTS FOR EVERY DOLLAR PAID TO MEN. (aauw.org)

The Equal Pay Coalition—originally founded by YWCA McLean County and many area women’s organizations—seeks to bring awareness of wage inequality for women in our community, change minds, and empower and educate women. The Coalition acknowledges that the gender pay gap is more than just a woman’s issue. Today, many women are the heads of their households and earning less makes the pay gap a family issue.

Equal Pay Day is a nationally recognized day that symbolizes how far into the year a woman must work to earn what a man earned in the previous year.
