Equal Pay Day: April 4, 2017

Tuesday, April 4, 2017, marks the day until which the average US woman must work to earn the same 2016 salary as her male counterpart earned in the calendar year. It’s also a powerful occasion to raise awareness about and organize action around the gender pay gap. Join with AAUW Murfreesboro to “celebrate” Equal Pay Day 2017.


Our inaugural high tea fundraiser celebrating women’s contribution to the workforce is happening just one week after Equal Pay Day. Show your support for pay equity by reserving your seat today and making a donation to fund AAUW scholarships for nontraditional women students at MTSU.

Tweet up a storm on social media

AAUW members and friends across the country will brew up a “Tweetstorm” for Pay Equity, and AAUW Murfreesboro will lend our voice to the cause. Watch this space (and sign up for our newsletter) for details about when the big social media push will happen and how you can participate.
