Join the Movement to #ask4more

April 14, 2015 marks National Equal Pay Day. This day reminds us of the unjust wages women are receiving each year…in 2012, women earned 77 cents for every dollar men received! At the current rate, equal pay won’t be realized for another 50 YEARS.

The Levo League has started the campaign #ask4more to bring this injustice to light and move to close the wage gap. They have enlisted several well-known women, including comedian Sarah Silverman to spread the word and encourage women to #ask4more :

Sarah Silverman’s personal story is here:

Follow the links and watch more women talk about their experiences in the work place and get advice from very successful women. Be inspired to #ask4more because you deserve it!

Have a  wonderful weekend!
