Women’s business and professional associations, labor groups, civil rights organizations and others committed to equal pay coordinate activities across the country to raise awareness about how to solve wage inequity. But you need to do something too.
- Negotiate. For yourself or another woman.
- Take the time to research pay in your industry and geography.
- Don’t automatically assume that other women aren’t the primary breadwinners in their families and that they “need” less pay.
- Share what you make — be more transparent with salary information.
