Equal Pay Day rally at Market Square: why are women paid less than men?

Tuesday, April 12th is Equal Pay Day, a date that represents how long into the current year women must work to catch up to the amount men earned just in the previous year. The Market Square rally, organized by the Women and Girls Foundation, is designed to raise awareness and education about the gender wage gap, particularly in the Pittsburgh region, with speakers, entertainment and the wage-gap bake sale.
