Equal Pay

Women, on average, still earn only .78 cents for every dollar a man earns. More than half of American women who work are breadwinners, contributing at least some part of the necessary income to maintain their households. Demand equal pay for equal work for women and their families.

Added to Your List

Maternity/Paternity Leave

The U.S is one of only a handful of countries that doesn't offer paid leave to new mothers, or fathers. Most women string together sick days, vacation days, disability and maternity leave to care for their children, and themselves, after giving birth. Advocate for family leave.

Household Help

On average, regardless of whether they work or not, women do 60 more housework than men do. Surprise a woman by cleaning the house, or better yet, hire a cleaning service.

Added to Your List

Flexibility

There are so many different ways to "have it all." Bosses, give women the flexibility to arrange our lives so we can be productive and fulfilled at work and at home.

Added to Your List

Critical Mass

We're thrilled about the 20 women who will serve in the Senate and the 78 women who will serve in the House of Representatives come January. Now we want critical mass, at least 30 percent representation in Congress. Give us more like Senator Barb.

Added to Your List

Affordable Child Care

For many parents, child care is their largest household expense, often exceeding the cost of the rent or mortgage. Advocate for public policies that make decent childcare accessible to all families.

Added to Your List

Safe Streets

More than 80 percent of women worldwide will experience gender-based street harassment at some point. Help put an end to street harassment and give women safe streets.

Added to Your List

Reproductive Rights

Women deserve access to a full range of reproductive health services and the freedom to make their own choices about their own bodies. Help defend and protect those rights.

Added to Your List

More Memes

Feminists have the best social media memes. From the Ryan Gosling's Hey Girl posts to the Texts from Hillary Tumblr, clever memes put a smile on a feminist's face. Keep 'em coming.
