The details, plus resources, are here.
The May issue of Redbook magazine has a great story entitled “Are Women Really Worth Less than Men? Our Government Says No, Our Paychecks Say Yes.” The article talks about the gender wage disparity that will cost women anywhere from $400,000 to $2 million over a lifetime in lost wages. It also features quotes from Lisa Maatz, AAUW’s top public policy adviser, whose areas of expertise include gender equity in education, Title IX, retirement security, pay equity, and other civil rights issues related to women and girls.
This Sunday beginning at 10 p.m., you can ask Lisa questions about the wage gap. She’ll join the Fem2.0 Twittercast on pay equity, along with experts from the National Women’s Law Center. The Sunday night chat will be hosted by Liza Sabater, a.k.a. blogdiva of Culture Kitchen, and Jill Miller Zimon of Writes Like She Talks.
To join in on the conversation, go to tweetchat.com, log in, and enter the fem2 room.

Come on now – I know this topic gets people hot under the white and pink and blue collars. Please join Liza, NWLC, AAUW and me tonight at 10pm DST to debate it.
