Women on a Mission…

As part of the American Association of University Women, the Edmonds SnoKing Branch is committed to the AAUW mission—advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

Pay Equity

Besides filing our income taxes in April, we also celebrate Equal Pay Day, the symbolic day when women’s earnings “catch up” to men’s earnings from the previous year. The typical woman working full time, year-round in the United States is paid just 80 cents for every dollar a man is paid, which means she has to work until April 10, 2018, to be paid as much as the typical man took home by December 31, 2017.
