Re: Are you ready for Equal Pay Day.

Did you see our earlier email?

Equal Pay Day is tomorrow, Friday 20 November. Have you got your Equal Pay mask ready? It's an important day in the Fawcett calendar - and our opportunity to call on the government to take action. Wear an Equal Pay facemask and share your pictures online using the hashtag #EqualPay, and tag the Fawcett Society, to make a statement.

In solidarity and determination.

Are you ready for Equal Pay Day
Friday 20 November is Equal Pay Day - the day where women in full time work effectively stop being paid compared to men. It's an important day in the Fawcett calendar year - one which we use to highlight the gender pay gap and call on government to make a change. This year is no different.

Coronavirus has pushed us into a generational crossroads for women in the workplace. This year’s Equal Pay Day report will highlight the hopes we want to realise and our fears for the future of women in work.

Although we can't gather together, we will be sharing the message online to let everyone know the importance of Equal Pay Day. Here's what you can do to help us spread this message:

Wear a face mask.

Can you wear an Equal Pay facemask? Wherever you are, face masks are an important way to keep us all safe at the moment. And if you have to wear one, why not make sure you make a statement about Equal Pay Day.

You can draw or paint on your mask, stick a sticker on or even sew it - it just needs to use the words Equal Pay to get our message across. We've got some great examples of the masks our team put together below. Get all your friends and family to wear them too. Once you've made your mask, share it on social media using the hashtag #EqualPayDay - and tag the Fawcett Society in it too.
Some top tips for making your mask on Equal Pay Day:
* Use your Equal Pay pin badge
* Write on a disposable mask with a marker
* Use a sticky label or post it note and stick it onto a mask
* If you're feeling very creative have a go at sewing on the words Equal Pay
* Make sure it's visible so we can get our message even further

Write to your MP

This Equal Pay Day we need to tell our MPs the importance of the gender pay gap. Last year we launched the Right to Know - to allow workers to find out how much their counterparts are being paid if they believe they are experiencing pay discrimination. We've come a long way since then - and last month the Equal Pay Implementation and Claims Bill was given leave to continue. That's why we urge you to write to your MP and ask them to pledge their support for the Bill - the more support we can get, the greater chance it has at success. Can you write to your MP now?

Sign the petition

Have you signed Kay's petition yet? Last year we shared Kay's story with you - After ten years of working as a chef for a large catering company, she found out she was being paid much less than a male colleague - even though they did the exact same job. She's calling for all women to have the legal Right to Know if they are being paid less than a male colleague - and her signature has already gained over 60,000 signatures. Sign her petition now to demand the Right to Know.

Get involved on Social Media

On Friday our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram will be full of Equal Pay Day artwork - give them a follow and make sure to share them so we can spread the message even further. Check out our Twitter ([link removed][UNIQID]) , Facebook ([link removed][UNIQID]) and Instagram ([link removed][UNIQID]) and make sure you spread the word this Friday.
Thank you for your ongoing support – we couldn’t do this without you! Last year we had 50,000 people sign our petition in just 5 days and reached 500,000 on social media. Let’s see if we can reach even further this year. With your help we can achieve Equal Pay.

In solidarity and determination.
