Even though women are more educated than men and more than ever are working full-time, the pay gap between university-educated young women and men persists. In fact, working full-time and full-year, a university-educated woman will only make 68% of the wages of a university-educated man.

The Canadian Labour Congress is launching a year long campaign to raise awareness of the ongoing economic inequality women in Canada face.  We want to dispel the myth that women have made it.   We want to talk about the wage gap, pay equity, minimum wages, Employment Insurance, pensions, child care, violence against women - all important struggles to eliminate economic inequality. We want to focus on young women, women in unions, pensioners, and women from equality seeking groups.

All the teach-in material, fact sheets and additional information can be found on the website.
