Pressing for Progress on International Women's Day

Started by the Suffragettes in the early 1900's, the first International Women's Day was celebrated in 1911.

Surprisingly though over 100 years later a large gender pay gap still exists today in many countries.

For example, in the UK although equal pay legislation was introduced in 1970, according to the Office of National Statistics women are still paid 24.6% less than their male counterparts in skilled trades. That doesn't sound like progress. We at Revolucy support equal pay for women and urge other companies to support this too.
