The Paycheck Fairness Act will help secure equal pay for equal work for all Americans. But until that happens, each state will continue operating under antiquated regulations and piecemeal state and local laws to combat unequal pay. While some states do have stronger laws than other states, AAUW members will keep working to make the whole country a better place for women to live and work.
Do you know any person, project, organization or who have made remarkable contributions to equality for women and girls. You can also nominate yourself or an organization for which you serve as an officer.
AAUW state/branch programs are not eligible for this award.
