Information Campaigns

We are creating interactive campaigns that seek to educate the general public about workplace sexual harassment, how the issue has been addressed throughout history and the courageous figures who have fought for progress.

THE CONGRESSIONAL ACCOUNTABILITY ACT OF 1995 REFORM ACT  (CAA)

The Congressional Accountability Reform Act of 1995 is a bipartisan bill that would bring transparency and accountability to the way Congress handles workplace sexual harassment. Bipartisan reforms to the CAA were unanimously passed by the House of Representatives on February 5, 2018. A vote on similar legislation in the Senate is still pending.

EQUAL PAY DAY

On Equal Pay Day — the day up to which the typical woman must work in a particular year to catch up with what the average man earned the previous year — we honored equal pay trailblazer Lilly Ledbetter. Ledbetter's story underscores the inextricable link between pay inequity and workplace sexual harassment.  At  80-years old, Ledbetter continues to work tirelessly to create fair and safe workplaces across the country.

Lilly Ledbetter

Twenty years ago, Goodyear tire plant manager Lilly Ledbetter came to work one morning to find an anonymous note in her mailbox: it listed her salary, which was a fraction of what other male managers at Goodyear were making. Until this moment, Ledbetter was entirely unaware of her salary difference. Upon being hired, she had signed an agreement that prohibited her from discussing pay with her coworkers, effectively silencing her employer’s discriminatory pay practices. As a silence-breaker of her time, Ledbetter courageously brought her case to the Supreme Court. She became the champion of what would become a national movement for equal pay. 

Ledbetter’s story transcends the fight for equal pay: in the wake of the #MeToo movement, we are reminded that cultures of silence – ones that are both legally and culturally reinforced -- have the ability to stall, stunt and end careers. More importantly, it is a prologue to what must become a higher standard for transparency, accountability and equality in workplaces across the country.
