Women in the U.S. who work full time, year round are paid only 84 cents for every dollar paid to men — and for women of color, the wage gap is even larger. It’s long past time to close the gap.
With women still paid only 83 cents for every dollar paid to men, it’s clear that we have a long way to go to make the workplace fair for women in the United States.
Equal Pay & the Wage Gap
Unpredictable, volatile work schedules in low-wage jobs can make it impossible for working women to make ends meet and care for their families.
Legal Network for Gender Equity
The Legal Network for Gender Equity connects people who face sex discrimination — like sex harassment — at work, at school, or when getting health care, with legal assistance.
More than 200,000 women serve in the U.S. military, and they should be able to serve in any position for which they’re qualified, be safe from sexual assault and harassment, and receive critical family supports.
Non-Traditional Jobs for Women
Women are nearly half the U.S. workforce — but they make up only tiny percentages of employees in traditionally male jobs like construction.
Pregnancy, Parenting & the Workplace
No pregnant woman should have to choose between her health and her family’s economic security — but that’s exactly the choice some are forced to make. Pregnant women deserve fair treatment on the job.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment — ranging from derogatory comments to threats of sexual assault and rape — is still incredibly widespread for many women working in the United States. And it can have grave consequences.
TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund
The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund helps to pay for legal fees for select cases of workplace sex harassment and related retaliation.
