Read WCC’s New Report and Take Action to Close the Gender Pay Gap

In partnership with The New School, Women Creating Change (WCC) has released a new report on the state of gender pay equity in New York City. “Closing the Gender Pay Gap: Why Pay Equity Has Stalled in New York City and the Urgent Need for Action,” sheds light on the persistent gender pay gap issue that affects women across all age groups and professions.

Six decades after the Equal Pay Act was passed, NYC women earn 90 cents for every dollar earned by their male counterparts. Gender pay equity is not just an economic concern but a moral imperative. When women, especially women of color, are consistently paid less than their male counterparts for the same work, it perpetuates systemic discrimination, reinforces harmful stereotypes, and stifles the potential of our entire city.

Together, we can work towards a fair and just future for all.

Explore the full report and our recommendations for closing the gender pay gap.
