A new feminist project led by former Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Murphy (D-MA) aimed at closing the wage gap between men and women is collecting women’s stories of workplace discrimination as it prepares to launch. The WAGE (Women Are Getting Even) Project is creating an interactive website to provide women and employers with tools to eliminate sex discrimination in the workplace.
Murphy, a PhD economist, is releasing her book, Getting Even: Why Women Don’t Get Paid Like Men and What to Do About It, in October.
The group has submitted a general call for women’s stories of discrimination in the workplace, which will be the centerpiece of the new website. To submit a story, visit www.wageproject.org/stories. The site is not yet open to the public so you will need to complete a form requesting user id and password. The user id is WAGE; the password is new. You may need to submit this information twice.
