Happy International Women's Day From FLATE

Happy International Women’s Day (IWD)! International Women’s Day occurs on March 8th every year to celebrate equality, recognize the hard work various individuals overcame in order to make a difference, and challenge ourselves to continue the work of our predecessors.

The 2020 theme selected by the IWD community is #EachforEqual which symbolizes that, “Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.”

In following the IWD Community’s theme, FLATE would like to present Florida a challenge to continue its hard work in ensuring equal pay for all genders! In 2018, the gap in Florida between earnings for men and for women widened significantly. Women in Florida who were working full time had median weekly earnings only 82.6% as large as men, which is a significant decrease from 2017’s total of 87.9% of male earnings.
