#Equal Value -Equal Pay Campaign
Despite the Equal Pay Act 45 years ago, women still earn less than men in Britain today.
The current gender pay gap means that women effectively stop earning relative to men on a day in November. This day is referred to as Equal Pay Day and varies according to the actual pay gap each year – in 2016 Equal Pay Day is the 10th of November. This is only one day later than last year.
What is the gender pay gap?
Overall, women can expect to earn significantly less than men over their entire careers as a result of differences in caring responsibilities; clustering in low skilled and low paid work, the qualifications and skills women acquire; and outright discrimination.
The current overall gap for full time workers is 13.9%.
Ldny has joined forces with the Fawcett Society in the battle to close the gender pay gap.
We are proud to announce that 10% sales from our "Pencil Tie" Dress will go towards supporting the great work of the Fawcett Society.
The "Pencil Tie" Dress is the modern female answer to the traditional men's suit and tie, because we believe it's time for women to fully take their seat at the table.
