Women in the Workplace

Be the Change!

Equality

Throughout history many women have not been able to get a job just because of their gender. Even if they would do the same job as men they would get paid less. In just ten years the percent of women working as lawyers and accountant rose by 15 percent. President Kennedy tried to get equal pay for women through his Equal Pay Act in 1963.

How you can help

Join Organizations and Spread Awareness

There are organizations like NOW and EEOC that are working to support women in the workplace. Helping support these organizations or joining them will help the cause of workplace equality. Speaking about this cause and spreading awareness to people will help try to change the way things are for women trying to get a job and equal pay.
