The FACTS about the pay gap:

Or why the Lilly Ledbetter Pay Act wasn’t enough, four years later:

— Women make just 77 cents for every $1 made by men. 

— For African-American, Latina women, it’s much worse: They earn just 70 cents for every dollar paid to men and 64 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.

– The amount a woman loses to the pay gap could feed a family of four for 37 years.

– The pay gap starts early

– The wage gap grows over a woman’s career, leading to more than $430,000 in lost wages for an individual woman.

– A woman’s pay, on average, stops growing when she turns 39

Maybe 23 cents doesn’t sound like a lot to someone with a Swiss bank account.

Tumblr Tuesday: Love Makes A Family

Families of all shapes and sizes submit their portraits in support of a simple message: Equality for all. 

The holiday photo campaign is inspired by the viral video of 20-year-old Zach Wahls’ testimony on behalf of his two lesbian moms. 

Submit a photo of your unique family!
