Stop by the Women's Center (112 Eielson Building, UAF) to check out our display commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act, signed by President Kennedy on June 10th, 1963. We've made some progress, however we still have a long way to go, as can be seen in the proportional size dollars representing the average wages for men who work full time, and women who work full time. The gap is even greater when factoring in race/ethnicity :-(

Visit the Justice Blog http://blogs.justice.gov/main/archives/2948 for information, background, and links on the Equal Pay Act. Peruse this _50 years After the Equal Pay Act: Assessing the Past, Taking Stock of the Future_ report for an analysis of where we've been and where we need to go http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/image/image_file/equal_pay-task_force_progress_report_june_10_2013.pdf
