[CANCELED] From Rochester to the Nation: The Battle for Equal Pay Continues

When: Wed., April 1, 6:30 p.m. 2020

Despite the Equal Pay Act, U. S. women continue to be underpaid. At the moment, women are earning 80 cents for every dollar earned by a man in a similar job. The disparity for women of color is even worse. Even child care leave is paid differently for men and women! It’s time to take action inspired by our Rochester foremothers. Jane Plitt is a Visiting Scholar at the University of Rochester, a former Rochester businesswoman who led the effort to integrate the Rochester Jaycees and Rochester’s men’s only grills. Co-sponsored by Rochester NOW and AAUW Rochester.
