The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap (Spring 2017)

Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what men were paid. The figure is even more dire for African-American, Hispanic or Latino women. While many occupations have managed to narrow or even close the pay gap, disparity still exists.
AAUW’s The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap addresses the issues such as the pay gap in each state; the pay gap by age, race/ethnicity, and education; guidance for women facing workplace discrimination; resources for fair pay advocates etc.

State Policy Sex Trafficking Tool Kit

Millions of people around the globe are the victims of human trafficking in the form of sex or labor trafficking, human rights violations, etc. AAUW believes that there is a need for national and international policies against human trafficking that promote peace, justice, human rights, sustainable development, and security for all people. The State Policy Sex Trafficking Tool Kit outlines three key state policy priorities — hotline posting requirements, safe harbor laws, and vacatur laws — to identify and combat sex trafficking.
