It’s Equal Pay Day: A Round-Up of Reads

Women, like men only cheaper

It’s Equal Pay Day, y’all! We’ve got a round-up of  reads and other tidbits to check out:

David Futrelle has a pretty comprehensive rebuttal to any of those wage gap “mythers” you may come across today.

Transgriot reminds us that the wage gap for women of color and trans women makes 77 cents look like a treat.

Good to see the President’s proclamation acknowledge some of this as well.

In the meantime, Romney still can’t say whether he would have signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) released data today showing how wage gaps vary in different states.

Add any other goodies you’ve found in comments!

    The ACLU is urging Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act and has sent a letter to President Obama asking him to sign an executive order banning retaliation against federal contract employees for discussing their pay. (You can take action here asking him to do so as well.)

    The National Women’s Law Center and Moms Rising also hosted a great blog carnival about equal pay. All those posts can be found here: http://www.nwlc.org/our-blog/blog-equal-pay-day-2012-%E2%80%93-posts
