Did you know? If nothing changes, NASA will land a crew on Mars by 2035. And if nothing changes, women in King County won’t earn the same wages as men until 2071.

Today, women in Washington earn just 78 cents for every dollar earned by a man who does the same work. The wage gap experienced by women of color is even larger. Think less than 50 cents on a man’s dollar.

The gender wage gap affects us all in our local communities – and statewide.

Join the Women’s Funding Alliance as they bring together local employers and professionals to explore the wage gap in our region, and share actionable solutions. Discover how King County can foster a more vibrant and inclusive economy for all.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
