Equality Bake Sale: February 5, Library Lobby

Posted by isulib on February 2, 2014

Feminist Majority, the student group affiliated with Women’s Studies, is holding a $.77 Bake Sale on February 5th from  noon  to 4pm in the lobby of the Library. The $.77 Bake Sale draws attention to gender wage inequality in America, where, according to the latest figures, women make only $.77 for every $1.00 that men make. So, at this sale, women can spend $.77 for a cookie or brownie that would cost men $1.00. This sale also welcomes Lilly Ledbetter to ISU. As part of the University Speaker Series, Ledbetter will be speaking about her experiences with wage discrimination at Goodyear, the passing of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the next steps toward workplace equality. Ledbetter speaks at Tilson Auditorium at 7pm. on February 5th.

Proceeds from the $.77 Bake Sale will go to the Women of ISU Scholarship. This scholarship directly addresses women’s wage earning potential by supporting non-traditional women students here at ISU.
